    I think we all are wondering where the new Ubuntu users are coming from!
    If I forgot your "previous" Distro, vote for it by posting a message!

    Mandriva nee Mandrake has come a LONG way. I run it on a backup machine just in case Ubuntu ever goes awry. Haven't needed it so far, but very impressed with Mandriva's latest KDE distro. Very impressed.

    I came along the lines of Slackware->Gentoo->Arch->Ubuntu.

    I still have my Arch machines but really like Ubuntu and have been recommending it to my friends.

    Was using Gentoo on this machine, and still have it installed on a few others, though I'm considering a complete switch-over.

    Re: What Linux Distro were you using before Ubuntu?

    Hi Everyone! I am new to this board...

    I just wanted to say that I will be trying out Ubuntu soon! I've heard a lot of good things about it and the fact that they use the Gnome desktop by default is Fabulous!!

    I have used MANY distros though the most recent ones have been Xandros and Fedora all the way to Mepis.

    I can see why a lot of people would be coming from Gentoo... User-friendliness is the majority vote these days along with the idea of being a very multi-media friendly distro. Now, I know Ubuntu isn't all that up on multi-media like Mepis is... but I hope they catch up to Mepis soon as I would rather run the Gnome desktop! I could always load the Gnome desktop into Mepis but I'd really rather have the OS built around the Gnome enviroment... than install it and have no support; as no one would know what to do, being they are KDE enthusiasts.

    Oh well... can't wait to try out Ubuntu!!
