To take the thread COMPLETELY off topic...
I put on Ubuntu over the weekend as mentioned above. Firstly, though the installation's resolution was fine, after boot, it was only 800x600. I went to their GUI tools, and that was the only option. So, I typed xorgconfig to get that it wasn't found. A few minutes of googling showed me that they have their own thing, dpkg-reconfigure xorg-server or something similar.
In fairness, I'm sure that's documented and easy to find on their site, but I could see a Windows user running into that and calling their Linux using friend. "No prob, run xorgconfig." "But I'm getting, 'command not found.'"
Then, printing. I tried their add printer thing and Cups asks me for the location of the ppd file. That is, I choose the printer, and then it wants the file. I eventually found where they store it, but didn't bother testing it. For me, installing printers is one of the acid tests of the "desktop oriented" Linux systems. Either do it or don't pretend you do, and say, "You have to use CUPS. Good Luck. mwhahahahahahah"
<@andre> i would be so much more efficient if i wasn't so stupid
