    Came from the Fedora world. Started out with the 32 bits version and apart from some smaller problems with the sound, everything worked well. When I got my new AMD64 system I installed the AMD64 version, and it's not been any fun from there. To many things is missing, and the system feels unstable.
    I still recomend the 32 bit version to friends, mostly because of the excelent Unofficial Ubuntu Starter Guide.
    Personally I'm thinking about going back. But I do like Ubuntu. But almost everything is missing from the 64 bit version, I know it is not like that really, but that's the way it feels.

    I still use a variety of distros.

    I started with Slackware and still use it to run a webserver. Stable and simple.

    Gentoo is just what I want on my desktop. Efficiency and control.

    The laptop switches between OS X (it's a powerbook) and Ubuntu . . . mainly because it sets itself up with so few problems.

    I used to use Fedora Core, but I like Ubuntu ALOT better... mainly because the Centrino wireless drivers work without configuration on a fresh install... well that and Core 4 broke nearly all the configurations for my hardware... Ubuntu is definately a better distro.

    I started with RedHat, then Mandrake, then Gentoo, then Mepis, and now I'm seeing if I can get Kubuntu to do what I need it to do. I would have stayed with Mepis, but it always seems to be too far behind on the latest "reliable" technology and I swear it just gets uglier to look at in every new release.

    Re: What Linux Distro were you using before Ubuntu?

    My Linux experience started with a live Knoppix CD a couple years ago. Then I had RedHat 9 on a old HP workstation I had lying around. When it finally konked out, I didn't mess with Linux for a good while. Then I installed FC4 on a laptop, and had troubles with hardware detection and dual booting it with Windows. So then I tried Ubuntu's Live CD, and fell in love with it. Installed it a few weeks ago, and haven't looked back. I'm dual booting Windows sometimes, but I plan on making Ubuntu Linux my main OS for personal use.

    Re: What Linux Distro were you using before Ubuntu?

    I started my linux experience with Gentoo.
    It has been hard, but I've learnt a lot of things about the system.
    Now I run Ubuntu because there are some pesky problems with some libraries.
    I was also a little bit tired of passing nights in configuring or installing programs,
    so I tried Ubuntu and I am quite happy
