Default Ubuntu

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

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

Default 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
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.

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.

Automatix is cool. Sudo is not!

If you dont want to keep using sudo, and use "su" instead, do this:

Code:
sudo passwd root
Then you are asked for the super user password, and then two times for a new root password. In ubuntu default installation root has no password set.

Cheers..

Arrow I might have rocks thrown at me for saying this...

I see that you have jumped on the ubuntu craze that is sweeping the linux world... no offense but Ubuntu is for people who want a Windows type linux with out the screw ups... I recommend that you spend a weekend installing gentoo (from stage 3... no optimizations here :P) From all this hardcore and technical problems you wont be afraid to edit and change root directories and such. The reason that i suggest this is that it basically forces you to learn bash shell programming allong with the unix shell structure... if you go from that to another OS you will be able to do (and understand the concepts) of almost anything at all.
