Pros: Works great.
Cons: Possible bug in Gnome-panel.



Other than the Gnome panel not wanting to stay or crashing, the 2010.1 (spring) edition is excellent! I heartily recommend it. It seems much better than the 2010 edition, at least for me....

Pros: easy to install recognized most all my hardware on two different computers
Cons: Didn't recognize my broadcom wireless card on my laptop but with a lot of work got it working.


Loads fast, does most everything my windows installation does seems to load web pages a little slower don't know why. More time will tell. You have to read a lot to get things to work right sometimes. Still don't understand networking too well but I'll figure it out I am sure.
Reason I came over to linux was all the free utilities you would pay big bucks for on windows that run from the terminal. When I saw how simple these programs really were and how much you pay for them on windows platforms I was shocked. Other reason is Bill Gates doesn't like anyone F-ing around and figuring anything out with his windows. That's the whole spirit of linux if you can improve it somehow and have the technical skills you can do anything you want it's open.

Pros: Very simple
Cons: Until now, I didn't find any problem


I'm a Math student and it's a good distribution in order to learn other OS.
