[ #29795 ]
I just installed Ubuntu 6.06 ("Dapper Drake") on my shiny new linux desktop. I'm quite happy with it. It seems almost too easy. X works, the sound works. I didn't spend hours tweaking the configuration. It just works. It comes with Perl 5.8.7, and a quick aptitude command got me SVK 1.06 (okay, they're a version behind on both, but it's a liveable lag, instead of the usual painful gap). I've been using Debian for years now, and I didn't expect the bit of spit-n-polish on the surface would make much difference. But it does. I can't quite explain it, but it's something like: "Strong reliable server, but also a comfortable desktop."
