Which xbuntu should I pick? You mean there are choices? LOL!

    Should I use Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, or Edubuntu? What's the difference?
    Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and Edubuntu are all the same Linux distro using
    the same base, the same software repositories, and the same release cycle.
    They just have different artwork, different user interfaces (in most cases),
    and different default programs installed.

    So you are telling me that I can install different versions because of some
    idiotic artwork and user interfaces? Why aren't they all included in one
    stinking OS? No wonder why Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, or Edubuntu are piles
    of SHIT!

    Very confusing to the new user. Oops.

    Different default programs installed? How do I know which default programs
    I need? Maybe I should install all versions and each time I boot, switch to
    see which default programs I need. You know, Ubuntu is free so this
    shouldn't take but 36 hours or so.

    No wonder why so many people ditch Ubuntu once they try it. Ubuntu really
    sucks.

    You could certainly do that, but a person with room temperature IQ would
    know what 'default' means and how to simply, quickly and easily install
    the programs he wanted that were not included by default.

    BTW - you can also easily install the packages that make those variants
    (I don't consider them to be distinct distributions) so you can choose
    which interface you want at login time - not boot time.

    FWIW - I've never known anyone to try Linux and go back to MS. They do,
    though, sometimes move to a different distribution.

    I can see how that would be nearly as confusing as selecting a win7:
    beginning, home, business, ultimate; 32bit or 64bit; upgrade or full?

    To clarify things here, those are not the choices (only one of them,
    Ultimate, is). Here's the complete list:

    Starter
    Home Basic
    Home Premium
    Professional
    Ultimate
    Enterprise.

    And to customers in the USA buying a copy, the only available choices
    on the list are Home Premium, Professional, and Ultimate.

    So Mr. Brilliant, which one would you install? Without researching all
    those INFERIOR versions, how do you know which DEFAULT programs are
    included? Isn't the install just a click? Aren't the "default" programs
    installed by default? Come on now Mr. Brains, which is it? You only wish
    your IQ could reach room temperature! LOL!

    I knew you would say something stupid like that. Of course you won't admit
    it. I am sure you don't know most of the inhabitants on the planet do you?
    I'll bet you don't know 99.999% of the people in Los Angeles or Ventura
    County, California. You sure are an idiot.
    No wonder, you use Ubuntu!!!!

    Hey dipshit - With Windows 7 any version, you get the same default programs.
    You don't have to research with cryptic program gets installed. Do I use
    GIMP or not use GIMP! LOL!

    Gee and I thought the different versions had different capabilities -
    read different applications. How silly of me.

    I would not necessarily choose any version of ubuntu - it would depend on
    what I was trying to accomplish on what platform. One recent install I
    did was the wife's netbook - I did a Debian net install.

    I guess you still don't understand the concept of 'default', so I won't
    try to explain it again.

    I did not claim no one ever switched back did I? I see you have the same
    reading comprehension problems as frankie and billie. Try READING what I

    Why are you here? To make a fool out of yourself? To prove you can lie
    and then lie about lying?

    Sorry asshole, but we all can clearly understand that you hate MS, don't
    use their products and are here simply to be a lying lintud FUD
    spreading troll along with your friend, alias the pimp.

    Try explaining WTF you're doing in here. You have no legitimate reason
