    If you mean Ubuntu I use it occasionally but I prefer Windows 7 over it

    yeah I meant, ubuntu. not real sure what happened there. I have vista on my computer, i hate it. Its slow and laggy, and terrible. I don't want to fork out the hundred something bucks for windows 7, so I'm left with ubuntu? Or is there something better thats free?

    I've been running ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop for months now. So much smoother but it does make phone hacking a pain.

    I run XP on my desktop and Ubuntu on the laptop. My girlfriend even uses Ubuntu and she's computer illiterate. It's easy to use, boots hella fast, and hardly ever crashes. If you can let go of that MS crutch then you're good. Also Android SDK works fine on Linux

    I should probably note that I'm using an old laptop and I can't get the sdk working so I have to use terminal.

    im confused with this comment... it should make phone hacking ALOT easier using linux instead of windows... at least this is my case. i do all my android customization and theming using debian.


    to the OP's question Ubuntu is nice for the beginner that really doesn't know Linux at all. I dont really care for it as its too bloated with extra crap. After the install i spend hours removing the extra crap they package with it. I prefer a Debian base install with no GUI or anything then i can install exactly what i want.

    I'm on an old laptop that is sluggish. Android sdk and eclipse don't run properly so I have to use a less intensive program ( terminal) and SBF_ FLASH to do my work.

    openSuse is a good easy distro , Slackware based, then Fedora or Debin , steeper learning curve on them.

    Ubuntu is a nice distro, works well on a hp mini 10. You could consider the laptop edition as well, simpler ui. I believe the laptop edition is call ubuntu remix.

    But "WHY THE RUM?!"
