Default Re: Do You LIke Or Use Ubuntu? - Read This!

I use it. I like it. But I also use Fedora. I like Fedora. And I also currently use a bastardized version of Mint 9/Lubuntu 10.04/Ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop PC. I like the bastard too. And I liked Mandriva 10.0 when I had it installed.

Is one better than another? In my case, not really. Hardware compatibility is a key factor in deciding which distro to run; some distros definitely do work better with some hardware configurations than with others. In my case,Fedora is the only distro that offers a version of the nouveau driver that actually runs and doesn't crash X or give me a blank screen; with all other distros I've tried, I need to use the proprietary Nvidia driver. NetworkManager just works in all of the above cases. Apt vs. rpm, synaptic vs. yumex, etc... is not an issue - they all just work.

Bottom line: If it works for you, and you like it, then use it; if not try another distro
