    well, after researching them a bit....ubuntu 6.06 sounds more...normal

    but I'd spring for kubuntu. Maybe even xubuntu.

    ubuntu is easier I think.. I would start with it and then try other variations as you feel comfortable. Do you have much linux experience? I just started using ubuntu 6.06 when it came out.. Very cool. Lots of stuff comes with it, so I'm ahppy. :yesnod:

    KDE (Kbuntu) is evil... it's very anoying and doens't look as nice as GNOME (ubuntu)

    Ubuntu 7.04 (Edgy Elk or some other stange animal) is out now ^^

    i've got it on my laptop... although it doesn't like my wireless lan card... stupid acers and their own software =@


    Ubuntu is the best for beginners and the like (i.e. me)

    Gnome is best for people who've used Windows computers before... as it has a task bar (of sorts) and KDEs task bar is a little harder to find and use... well at least that's what i found.


    ----


    I don't know much about linux the operating system... but after trying 8 different linux operating systems... i know which one liked the best.

    Well why not both? You can install both Gnome and KDE and switch between them.

    *shudders*

    I guess you could do that... but the grub loader is really annoying... it's much nicer than the windows one though.
