I've wanted to try out Ubuntu on my desktop for a while.  The only thing
holding me back is actually making the switch from Fedora Core - I don't
really want to do it.

I must say Ubuntu has been looking pretty good lately.



I'm on Kubuntu now, because I had to do a quick reinstall (no time to
download 4 discs and then babysit the install) and I knew that
reinstalling mp3+ blah blah blah would be too much of a hassle, and it
was a few weeks before FC5 came out. You can see that I'm still loyal
to FC, as I still read the mailing list, but Kubuntu has really
changed my mind about how user-friendly a linux distro could be. And
my wifes. Things Just Work (tm)- mp3's play, my disk-on-key is
recognised. One disk installation (That's only one disk to download.
That's only one disk to give to a potential convert. That's only one
disk to media check.)
