Plug and play winner so far: Ubuntu Linux

Computerworld.com has had their hands on Ubuntu – and they are impressed with it so far!
They look at the different distributions ability to find hardware and plug'n'play -and here's Ubuntu is the absolute best so far!

After playing with three more bootable Linux distros last night — that's five so far — only one easily found both my Internet connection and printer: Ubuntu, the version recommended by several readers. It definitely pays to listen to our readers!

Ubuntu found my Internet connection without me doing a thing; and configuring the printer was as easy as choosing “add a printer,” selecting the already detected printer and then picking its manufacturer and model number from a drop-down menu. Later this week, I'm going to see how it works to transfer files off of a digital camera, another major issue for me as a home user.
