Has anyone made any experiences with Ubuntu? Is it worth a try?

Definitely worth a try. IMO, the best Desktop distribution out there.

Just downloaded it. Let's see... :)

I have it on another machine
Anything that is like debian I will pick up.

As it stands I now use Ubuntu with evolution to do all my e-mail. I will not use Outlook or Outlook Express. Evo seems to have done the trick :D
My next project is setting up a mail server and seeing how I can work the two together......much thanks to Falko and Till.

I used it for awhile, very nice, currently switch between Fedora Core 4 and...Windows :( but i think i would use ubuntu again, great for people new to Linux or switching from Windows or Mac OS

I use Ubuntu for all purposes. I currently still have a windows box though. I do play games now and again.

Pretty much at this point I can name a linux program to do anything you'd want to do.

Ok, let's try :
Activesync and Motorola or other phone tools (cell)

if it isn't too late try Kbuntu also. It is teh KDE version.

If you already installed ubuntu you can turn it into kbuntu by installing the KDE batch from synaptic.

only trick to remember with ubuntu is to always use the sudo command. You can read the wiki on their website for propper usage.

Ubuntu is what I'm currently using. I started out with SuSE and tried Fedora Core, but went back to SuSE after that. Ubuntu was one that I didn't like at all, but I had a computer that for some reason wouldn't take SuSE, so I tried Ubuntu on it and it installed with no problem. Since then, I've really started to like it. It's actually now on one of my laptops and also a desktop. Very sweet distro.

i love ubuntu. i'm several months new to linux, so i can't really effectively use the terminal or do under-the-hood sort of things, but ubuntu is really working out well. my main os is still windows (sadly, but its for the gaming), and i've tried many other linux distros, including linspire, debian, and fedora core, as well as messed around with knoppix.

i plan on setting up my own internet site using ubuntu on an old p III server. the only things ubuntu gives me trouble is getting matrox drivers, (though they aren't necessary) and running ubuntu livecd on a mac (just a side experiment).

with dapper drake coming out soon, ubuntu will be even cooler, with the compiz and xgl stuff.
