Hi there,Im Alex from Portugal, im not a expert at linux, iv been using ubuntu on my laptop as main os since last year. Well i like ubuntu and all, but the problem was the stability.... ubuntu didn't support my sound card :S, tht really pissed me off, and i decided to look for the right kernel for my laptop. I changed to Fedora, Mint, Mandriva,Suse, and others...
I hope this isn't too off-topic....my experiences with Ubuntu have been really great, but I've fallen into a pattern where either something works great by default (which is awesome), or it doesn't. When it doesn't, I Google the problem and randomly copy/paste solutions until it works.
