So I use to not like Ubuntu, but after getting used to Debian, and installing Ubuntu for a friend and a family member, I got to looking at it, and it really is not bad at all. In fact, I have now installed it on my system as my main OS. Pretty good for a guy who was never an Ubuntu fan. 7.10 just makes everything way to easy though. It will automatically install almost anything. Video Drivers, winmodems, wireless card drivers, and so on. I am really impressed. It has a nice polished look.
In fact, this weekend, I even went back and got my brothers laptop and brought it back over to put all the little tweaks on a system I normally do. I setup new icons, new login screen aimed at him using pictures of his birds and a nice wallpaper I made with a picture of the bird he has had the longest. I also sped up the boot time by eliminating the usplash screen. I just edited the spash line out of the grub stuff. Really nice. 🙂
It is funny, I used to really like KDE, but now after using Gnome for a while and liking it, KDE seems kinda clunky to me. Weird.. However, I am all for people using whatever makes them feel most comfortable. After having used KDE for years, I can not really recommend people not do so. For those used to Windows, KDE is great.
