Linux Ubuntu/Kubuntu... or Linux Mint?
I just want to know which would be easier to learn and which you prefer. I've heard someone say that people who are new to Linux should start off with Linux Mint, but I started off with Ubuntu 10.10, I didn't like the GUI too much, but I like Kubuntu's GUI, it's awesome, or maybe it's because it's so identical to my current Primary OS, Windows 7. Another question, why is it that the two are so similar? They have similar features, but Linux seems to have more. Basically, right now I'm only using Windows 7 because of gaming and the fact that certain school software won't run on Linux, like Carnegie Online Learning. I checked the Notepad it left behind and it said "Is.Mac = False, Is.OSX = False, Is.Windows = True" and there was none for Linux, so I assume that I'm not missing any plug-ins to run it.
