    Karmic 9.10 is amazing!

    I am VERY impressed by Ubuntu 9.10!! I was a kde/kubuntu guy until they borkd it with kde4.

    This latest time I tried gnome/ubuntu with 9.10 really hit home with how everything JUST WORKS. I have rolled it out at work as we're getting rid of windows.

    I have been able to transition staff to ubuntu with only minimal retraining. Open Office is close enough to m$ that they may as well be the same. We've been using Open Office and gimp for a while anyway.

    Anyhow, wow, thanks Ubuntu!! You've given us an OS that works. An OS that doesn't restart every time you change a subtle setting or install something. And OS that will be there tomorrow and work just like it did today.

    Kinda lost my love for ubuntu, more changey than Vista or Win8
    So LMDE it is for me until there's a way to update my distro and not
    have everything disappear.

    The Kubuntu team like many, decided to foolishly just put KDE 4 in there before it was really. I definitely recommend you try KDE 4.2 or 4.3 as they are up to the same standards more or less that you were used to with KDE 3.x, word of advice, don't choose Kubuntu to try this.

    Open Office is close enough to m$ that they may as well be the same. We've been using Open Office and gimp for a while anyway.
    OpenOffice is great for a lot of people, I've given it to plenty of people who needed an office suite but couldn't afford Microsoft Office. However if you use it a lot (I've found this with Calc mainly) there are features lacking. Also I recommend against using the term "M$".
