The Exodus continues

Having been advised not to put Gentoo on the computer, I have a backup plan. I have a copy of Ubuntu. Let us hope it works.

  1. I personally don’t like Ubuntu. You’ll run into differing opinions. The most important thing is to just try several different distros until you find one that clicks. Fedora, PCLinuxOS, and Linux Mint are all fantastic for beginners. I would stay away from OpenSuSE. It’s okay initially, but it becomes a nightmare if you want to do anything past the initial installation.

    That said, X/K/Ubuntu gets a lot of hype and a lot of people like it. If you like it, stick with it.

    And congratulations on leaving Windows.

  2. I like Ubuntu. It’s good for GNU/Linux beginners (which is me). Fedora’s pretty good too, but Ubuntu appears to be where the development community is congregating.
