I've been using Debian based Kubuntu on my laptop, and find the package management excellent. The installation and maintenance is easy. It's my choice when I want to install and go.
Thanks, I didn't know Kubuntu / Ubuntu was Debian based. I like Debian but the distribution always seems to be stuck in last year, It's still using a 2.4 kernel, XFree86, and KDE 3.3! Anyways, Kubuntu 6.06 Beta2 appears to meet most of my requirements so I'll give it a whirl. -- BSD Podcasts @: http://bsdtalk.blogspot.com/ http://freebsdforall.blogspot.com/ _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
