| Microsoft hasn't gotten off to the best start with Vista. It's slow, it's
| annoying, and sometimes, it's downright confusing. Linux has been around for
| ages but has played David to Bill Gates' Goliath for longer than we can
| remember. We're not predicting that Ubuntu will change that relationship, but
| it may be the alternative you've been looking for. Because Linux has always
| been a bit of a mystery to most people, we want to take this opportunity to
| answer the myriad questions you might have about this promising OS while
| sharing what we like about it and what we don't.


Ubuntu Studio supports serious audio, adds little for video and graphics

,----[ Quote ]
| As multimedia distros go, Ubuntu Studio's decision to build on to an existing
| distro instead of reinventing the wheel gives it a leg up on its competition.
| I look forward to seeing what Ubuntu Studio will release once Ubuntu 7.10 is
| out the door.



A Look at Ubuntu Studio

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu has been the most popular Linux distribution for quite some
| time now. This popularity has spawned quite a few variants. Apart
| from the inevitable third-party knock-offs, there are a few
| "official" Ubuntu-based distributions: Kubuntu, which has a KDE
| GUI instead of the standard GNOME, Edubuntu, which is optimized
| for use in classrooms and Xubuntu, which uses the lighter-weight
| XFCE desktop to take advantage of older computers. Now, a new
| variant has appeared called Ubuntu Studio.


Ubuntu Studio 7.04 - The Crowning Jewel of the Ubuntu Family

,----[ Quote ]
| I am truly amazed and delighted with Ubuntu Studio. I'm surprised at my
| reaction as well. I'm not a big Ubuntu supporter, although I'm not a
| detractor either. I've just never been all that impressed with Ubuntu.
| Ubuntu Studio is a different matter. It was attractive and pleasant with
| some little extra touches that make it seemed very polished and
| professional.

| Ardour2, Wired, Hydrogen, Blender, Inkscape, Pitivi, and many

Slackware 12: The anti-'buntu

,----[ Quote ]
| If you want an easy-to-use Linux distribution that doesn't make you work too
| hard, Slackware might not be for you. On the other hand, if you want a distro
| that's quick to set up, and know how to configure it by hand (or aren't
| afraid of learning to), you might fall in love with Slackware. It's
| definitely an interesting way to learn how to use Linux. And it's definitely
| a way to get a stable server up and running in very little time.

Some Reasons Why I Choose Ubuntu over Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| I grew up with Microsoft operating systems. Ie been through MS-DOS 5.0, Win
| 3.1, Windows 95, 98, Millenium Edition, NT 4.0, 2000, and XP. Notice how I
| stopped there. After over a decade of Windows, I decided to give Ubuntu a try
| and now have no reason to install Vista.
