I've been using Ubuntu since Breezy, and the best thing about it has been how fast it is to install. I used to endlessly customize and fix my Linux installations, so a great, working default install is a time saver. I sure love the apt package manager. Back when I was using RPMs, they were terrible. Life is good with Ubuntu. I don't do games anymore, so I do not have a Windows parition. I am 100% free - except for a driver and a codec or two
I use OpenSUSE on my server, but may move to Debian when Lenny goes to stable. I know how easy Ubuntu is, but I am curious to try other Distros for comparison. Next to install on the desktop is Arch, then Zenwalk.
In the forums, I prefer rational, informed discussion. I used to be more active (and more helpful), but I've learned a lot here, so I'll try to answer questions from time to time. I am an Engineer by trade.
