    Thinking about switching to Ubuntu

    I have been running Gentoo for a year now. Recently I was *experimenting* with my system and broke it. I no longer have the patience that is required to fix gentoo. However I see Ubuntu and I like the package manager.

    I like using light applications. If I do change to ubuntu I want to use fluxbox as my window manager and those kinds of apps. So is this a good idea?

    I would like to hear from you guys and whats it like to use ubuntu.

    Also, is it easy to handle win32 codecs and get java on ubuntu?

    ubuntu has fluxbox support i think its xubuntu (nope that is xfce stupid me but you can just install fluxbox normaly). The support for ubuntu is great. coming from gentoo I dont think you would have a problem with win32 codecs or java.

    Welcome to the club!

    EDIT: wrong fluxbox name

    Xubuntu is for XFCE, but you can use Fluxbox on Ubuntu if you like. Others do. I use Openbox myself.
    My sole duty is to my own happiness and well-being. I recognize no other.
