Yes I've tried ubuntu, and it was a very disappointing experience. I still have it on one partition, it will take a week of searching and trying to change things in the files to get my screen resolution working, not to mention I don't understand why its so difficult to get the codex working when they're legal for home use.
I recommend linux to everyone, its the only OS I use, and winblows is only suitable for a game platform, but linux would too if they made good games for it. Its not that it wont play the games its that they deliberately make them hard to play and only with wine for some of them. Of course we have some of them working with wine.
I recommend Pclinuxos, and mepis. I always keep the latest ones of each on hand. If I replace my monitor, I don't to spend long research and countless hours getting my resolution perfect, but one of the two always work. Hardware, monitors, excellent programs, and the drivers for watching videos and dvds, which are critical.
When people recommend ubuntu to those who havnt tried linux they are recommending a nightmare for most people, hard to set up, and not the easiest to use, it takes countless hours.
I always considered ubuntu to be deliberatley made like this to discourage people from choosing linux and its promoted by a very wealthy businessman. This wasnt by accident.
