While I generally disagree that GUIs are easier, it is depressing just how lacking documentation can be on text configuration. True, things are *mostly* self documenting, but it is always the edge cases that are a pain in the ass.

EDIT:

Actually, I guess that is true of GUIs as well :)

was put impeccably into words at DebianDay for me last Saturday, by Knut Yrvin of Trolltech - adults try something once, fail, and then are like "ffs this doesn't work". Children try, fail, and then try again, and succeed - maybe on the second, or even fifth retry. But the thing is that they keep at it and overcome the problems in the end.

im on ubuntu, but im waiting until they straighten out some of the bigger bugs.

Seems to be working perfectly for me. If you're using 7.4 then I advise you to upgrade by downloading the alternate install. Note that you should back up boot/grub/menu.lst incase windows is removed from it if you're dual-booting.

The main reason for me to like it over 7.4 is because it features read/write NTFS support.

O.P. RE: gutsy gibbon
my dad told me about a lot of people that have upgraded to gusty[7.10] have had problems with the interwebz, and slow/not being able to connect at all, so we're waiting a week or two till we upgrade =p

but i dont know if its true or not, just hearsay etc.

edit: oh and the best thing about any linux distro.... fortune! :P linkage(pdf)
