A message for Linux.com registered users: We are in the process of making changes to the Linux forums. Starting Monday, 8/13/18 at 6:00 PM PT, you will be unable to access the forums. They will re-launch as soon as possible on Wednesday, 8/15/18 with new features and improved functionality. Thank you for your patience and stay tuned for the new improved forums.
To all those new ubuntu users.
Try Kubuntu, its not a spin off of ubuntu, it is ubuntu, simply using the KDE GUI instead of Unity or Gnome. Try it, you will love it.
