Re: Favorite Distribution!

I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 on a hard drive for my old computer. Played around a bit. I've never used Ubuntu seriously. Perhaps someday. It certainly continues to improve. It is certainly fine for surfing, and I have posted to ABXZone from Ubuntu.

But some Windows programs are still not adequately replaced in Ubuntu.

I was considering Ubuntu for my wife's computer. She uses Word, Excel, email and Quicken. Open Office is fine for Word and Excel equivalents, and email is no problem, but there's no software that can import the latest Quicken data format (as of six months or so back).

Re: Favorite Distribution!

I am a fan of Mint. I toy around with others in virtualbox, but its usually an Ubuntu derivative.

I use Mint sometimes when I need to do a boot from dvd. What's good about Pear? I haven't seen that one yet. Mint 12 has pretty good functionality. Video, sound, web, HD access all work great.
