I decided to replace the Fedora core 4 machine I had at home with the bizarrely named "Feisty Fawn" version (7.04) of Ubuntu, which has gotten oh so much attention as of late. Having never installed Ubuntu, I wanted to know what the big deal was.
There was only one disk to burn. That was a nice surprise. I started booting, and found that the CD I burned was actually a Live CD. It booted me right into Ubuntu. Naturally, I didn't read much about installing the distro, so I surmised for a minute that perhaps Ubuntu was just a Live CD. Not so -- after I actually looked at the items on the desktop, I found a single "Install" icon. Clicking this proceeded with the install of Ubuntu on my local hard drive.
The distro has so far proved to be very usable. There is an "Add/Remove Applications" feature which is remarkably like the "Add/Remove Programs" feature in Windows. That is very useful for users who grew up in a Windows world. My one complaint thus far is that I can't login as the root user. I'm sure that if I look around the net enough I can find a way around that :).
