I switched to Ubuntu 6.1 (Edgy) and I am in looooooove. I feel that within a month's time, I will no longer need to revert back to my Windows dual boot because everything I need will be working on my Ubuntu. Just the scanning and a few other things are holding me hostage to Windows right now.

I just put Suse 10.2 over Ubuntu 6.06... I don't like Suse in Gnome mode so I am gonna try the KDE version and see... In the end I am sure I will be back on Ubuntu...

The more i play with Suse 10.2 the more I like it! The new Gnome menu is awesome! Think I will stick with it for a while and see.... RPM and Yast.... YUCK! But, I really like the Suse Gnome look!

Edubuntu rocks!

My munchkin is/has been using FreeBSD on his desktop for about a year now but he is 14..... Depending on the age of your munchkin Edubuntu might be a good choice.... I have not had windows in about 3 years.... My munchkin has to use it a school and he is lost.... The kids look at him like he is nuts when he says he is using Unix.... (He on BSD)

I have been using Ubuntu since Breezy BUT have to say I am very impressed with Suse 10.2.....

And its just real difficult to justify throwing much resources and $$$ at something that represents, based on the stats that a quick google search revealed - about 2% of the desktop market.

Now if you're asking them to support BES on a Linux server, that makes a WHOLE lot more sense, because the Linux marketshare on servers is quite significant. (Do they support BES on Linux now? I don't even know.)
