Well, after 24 hours I'm very tired and also content with Ubuntu.
Coming from Debian, Gentoo and Fedora - Ubuntu has to be the best prepackaged distribution out there. While I'm not new to Linux, not having to venture into a shell much at all was great.
I installed Hoary amd64 onto my Asus Z92U Turion (A6000 - A6U) laptop and I've never seen a distro that quite literally supported nearly everything out of the box.
Everything except my MMC card reader and wireless card worked immediately, the MMC reader is a known bit of hardware linux isn't friendly with (and I'm not going to buy any products nor recommend Ricoh to anyone until they stop being pig headed), and the wireless card had a beta driver from Intel which isn't considered stable yet (though it's working better than Windows).
So all in all, I'd like to say thanks to everyone who maintains the pacakages and puts Ubuntu together, because I've not come across a distro that was so easy to install. And a big thanks to Canonical for sending out CD's, I've handed them out to my Windows using friends and installed Ubuntu for a few elderly people with computers who don't know enough to be able to update their virus checker etc on Windows - and why bother when you can use Linux!
Ubuntu brings Linux a step closer to being ready to compete head on with Windows .
My only gripe is that f-spot and lsongs aren't in the respository, though I see f-spot is in Breezy so I can wait a few weeks for that.
