Looking for a linux distro - Page 4

post #31 of 32
I'm using Xubuntu right now (Ubuntu with xfce) and I just got my hands on a second laptop to play around with (don't want to screw up my main laptop! I need a fallback in case I break something) which I'm going to try out other distros on.

Xubuntu has been way easy to use, is fairly similar to say, Windows XP's UI plus OS X's UI with a few nice advantages/differences. Under the hood, Ubuntu is very simple to use and I've only had a couple issues that I had to open a terminal for. The only problem I have right now is some hiccups with various things because of having two uneven monitors, and some issues with standby/hibernate (those are very common though sadly).

Why don't you install a couple of distros on virtual machines to try them out and decide which one you like the most?
Anyway, I'd recommend Mint as a starting distro or and Arch if you want to have some "fun" tongue.gif. Arch has a lot of documentation too.
