I Love Ubuntu
I am curious by nature, and I’m always looking to see whether there’s something better over the horizon. I installed Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron the day after it was released, and I was impressed. But I knew there were other fine Linux distros out there, like Fedora 9, OpenSUSE, Arch, and others.
Recently I’ve tried a few of these on my laptop, but I invariably return to Ubuntu Hardy Heron.
1. It just works. You put the CD in, run the installer, and, after answering a few questions, you get a nice, working Linux system that supports your hardware and is ready to go. No extra configuration, no tweaking of the UI (do you hear me, Foresight?), the drivers are loaded, and everything’s happy.
2. The default install is excellent.
