In fact, I just migrated from mandrake to ubuntu and I don't regret it one bit. Ubuntu is extremely user friendly and easy to use. The package management is just as good, if not better than mandrakes urpmi. I highly recommend switching.

Ubuntu is based on the Debian Linux distro so all its packages have the .deb extension.

Use anjunta if you dont have KDE installed. KDevelop will require hundreds of megs of dependencies otherwise. Quite a waste if you ask me.
