The Fanboy ubuntu post.

I recently installed ubuntu 6.1 and I love it. I LOVE IT. This is the best user linux distro EVER. EVER!

I've been using Linux for years as a sever but never been able to stomach it on the desktop. I tried Red Hat, then Fedora, and well I could not get anything else to work.

But ubuntu works! Holy cow!

The installation is a wet dream. It takes away everything I don't care about, (Partitioning, package selection, etc) and just installs what I need.

Top things I freaked out about when installing ubuntu.

- Boots to a usable desktop
- Looks great
- wireless works!
- Firefox 2.0 installed, and WORKING
- apt-get works!
- Tutorials work!
- sudo WORKS out of the box

If you have not tried ubuntu, then for the LOVE OF GOD, try it!

Took you long enough. Of course Ubuntu rules. If you think that's impressive, try the livecd of Kubuntu.
