    Smile Kubuntu...


    Hi there

    I'm downloading Kubuntu, the 64bit version. Has anyone used Kubuntu and how would you rate it? The last linux distro I used was Suse and I really liked it, except for the ATI problems. Ok, I'll make it easier:

    1. If someone has experience with Kubuntu, how would you rate it?

    2. Does it use Xfree of Xorg?

    3. Does it have NTFS support?

    4. Does it have the basic codecs for mpeg, mp3, etc?

    5. Any specific likes or dislikes in your experience?

    I'm still a newbie, so I'm fairly full of crap.

    Everything of the best to you all for the new year!!

    Regards

    1) I don't care much for Kubuntu, but you might.
    2) Yes, it does use xorg.
    3) I think it has some support for it.
    4) Not sure, but if no, you can download what you need.
    5) It was really buggy when I tried it, but that was a while ago.

    Have fun with it!

    It's okay. It has a clean interface--it's not cluttered. And it has only one application per task.

    2. Does it use Xfree of Xorg?
    Xorg.

    3. Does it have NTFS support?
    Read, yes. Write, no.

    4. Does it have the basic codecs for mpeg, mp3, etc?
    No, but you can install them yourself.

    5. Any specific likes or dislikes in your experience?
    Dislikes--big balloon tooltips (these can be turned off), automounting and autoopening defaults (also can be turned off). Likes--simple and clean.
