The 'buntus seem to be more interested in converting people from Windows 
than in supporting folks who have been dedicated Linux users for years.

Of course ex-Windows users need a lot more handholding than experienced 
Linux users.

I find a lot of the things 'buntu does to "help" Windows converts cause 
problems for experienced users.

I have a Kubuntu machine in order to help some friends who have started 
to use it, problem is most of those folks use Gnome, and I vastly prefer 

I've had to switch from KMail to Thunderbird, my ISP is starting to have 
a lot of dropouts, which T'bird seems to tolerate better than Kmail with 
an IMAP server.

But the answer to which Linux distro is best is "The one you are 
familiar and comfortable with". Myth will run on any stable Linux system.
