It's the friendliest Linux I've tried, and I've tried a few :)

ooooooh, Herd. Nice.

Euphro says:

Very stable and quick so far :)

mat says:

Are they actually using the Hurd, or is it still a linux core?

Euphro says:

I think it's still a Linux core. "Herd" is just another word for "Test" in this case :)

Ah, I see - it's like the Edgy "Knots" then. You can find out what kernel you're running by doing "uname -a" in terminal.

My laptop is still on Xubuntu Dapper, tbh. :)

Euphro (in between reboots) says:

I use Xubuntu Dapper on my laptops too. Edgy was a bit too "edgy" for me, where I needed complete stability and reliability :)

[edit] thanks for the uname -a tip :)

btw, the final version of the Flash 9 plugin for linux x86 machines was released on monday.

get it here (or, wait a short while until it's in the ubuntu repositories)

Still no x64 version though, so I'm still flashless. boo.

Euphro says:

I've got it already, thanks (bit of a fiddle to install it for Opera, too, but it seems quicker) :)

Euphro says:

This is an alpha version, likely to be very unstable. If you've got a working 6.10 system I'd stick with it. The final version of 7.04 is due out on April 19th :)

I'm not totally geeky, but Linux friendly.
Someone sent me to Fedora the other day....that looks cool. The pull back windows and stuff are waaay cool.

Euphro says:

Fedora is good too (I've used it up to Core 5; I couldn't get Core 6 to install thanks to incompatibilities between my Matrox video card drivers and Xorg 7.1), but I could never get it to do WiFi very well. Ubuntu seems to do it effortlessly :)
