    Linux Distro Thread

    Count me as a Ubuntu convert. Now I LOVE Debian, but I found myself spending too much time just messing with things. I tried Ubuntu after hearing so many people gush over it and it comes closer than any other distro I've tried to "just working". In fact, the only thing I can think of right now...
