Fedora, I did try Ubuntu over the weekend. It wasn't bad at all, don't think I will switch or use it (ubuntu or Fedora) as my primary os though.

so your completely unbiased then?

and i think you missed an option.... how about "I have no problem with Linux on paper, but actually making it work is too much of a pain in the ass"?

or "I just prefer Windows" (I fall into both these categorys)
