I know this is the ubuntu forum but in the spirit of Linux in general I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on SuSE or other distros.
I like ubuntu a lot but cannot get it to install on a custom PC. I did get SuSE to work but I'm having a hard time making the transition. I don't like yast and I can't figure out how to get things set up. The ubuntu method doesn't work (i.e. apt-get this and dpkg that) and no automatix that I'm aware of.
Their forum is also no where near as active and helpful as this one.
If ubuntu won't work for me, any thoughts on what might? Are there other distros I should consider? I don't want a linux for hackers - I don't know that much. I just want a clean one that works without a ton of effort - something like, well...ubuntu.
