    Not sure how much of a hit Ubuntu is on the server end, but it sure is ruling the desktops

    After installing Ubuntu 9.10, the software center failed to install any software. Neither manually installing the software worked but finally I resolved the issue & now I feel its good. Let's see as I have still lots to discover & experience in this new release.

    ubuntu 9.10 looks good, but its buggy.

    my pc was going to sleep mode with no option to wakeup again, only way was to press reset button. now i have kept sleep mode off :)

    gdesklets stopped working within a week, now i am with screenlets :)

    software center worked for me from start, though i rarely use it. now ubuntu 9.10 is working fine

    Ubuntu Karmic is the worst release ever in Ubuntu's history. I am really frustrated. Even during installing i failed 5 times with Ubuntu and Kubuntu. Finally I gave up. Thats the case with my desktop. In my laptop, i was successful but the apps are going crazy. The only + is the Intel Graphics driver.

    Finally, after experiencing pain I swithed over to Mandriva 2010 which is really awesome. I wonder why Mandriva doesn't deserve mention. I really love this distro. I was actually waiting for Fedora 12 but Mandriva caught me.

    Read my experience http://vamsisubhash.co.cc/2009/11/11/mandriva-and-me-perfect-match/

    ^Bottomline, vamsi360, is that since these distros gets made by different people with different ideas, it won't be fit-fora-ll type ever. Had this had been the case, there won't be a term or activity called 'distro-hopping'.

    I, too, have read really bad reviews of KK since new technologies and features have been added, which is bound to buggy. But considering the attraction of users to date with Linux with Ubuntu's ease and appeal/simplicity, Ubuntu deserves all the praise or credit in FOSS community.

    Mandriva is very new user friendly , which PCLinuxOS had the position previously. But the latter went downhill with inactive dve cycle which prompted Mandriva and openSUSE to race ahead.

    Still I would rate Ubuntu as the fastest developing distro. By fastest developing I don't mean including cutting edge technologies, that crown is on Fedora's head.

    Mandriva is one of the oldest distros to survive. Mandriva is used mainly for mainstream purposes (Just now I read from LFY). Even in my college we use Mandriva Enterprise and RedHat Enterprise. I am really enjoying this distro.

    Downloaded Opensuse 11.2 2 days back. But after playing with the Live KDE environment I didn't find a compelling reason to move away from Mandriva. I will dual boot Fedora 12 with Mandriva when it arrives.

    +1. I would add that Fedora is overthrown by Ubuntu just because of money and more easiness. But when Ubuntu starts experimenting it just becomes another Knoppix. Remember Knoppix story?

    I have Ubuntu 9.04 installed. Should I install 9.10 ? Is it really worth trying ?

    Ubuntu is a very good OS, best of all, it's easy to install.

    Yeah, I am perfectly satisfied with 9.04. :mrgreen:

    I will probably stick to it till something awesome come from Ubuntu. Maybe gnome 3 etc.

    IMHO Karmic shutdown is much better than Jaunty. Karmic takes 3-6 seconds to shutdown in my rig.

    I'm going :offtopic: now. I tried to install Sabayon 5 today, but it does not detect the HDD I want to install it in. I have a 160GB Hitachi and a 500GB Seagate. The 160GB is only for OS and I have XP, 7 and Karmic installed. Now I made a 25GB partition for Sabayon. I burned the iso image to dvd and ran it boot time. During installation first of all it shows drives only under my Seagate HDD (STxxxxxxxxx), while my Hitachi drive is not shown. What do I do about this?
