Ubuntu web page and things

    I think the magic of Ubuntu is that it loads as easy as Windows XT 
and Vista and provides a computer which is superior to both Windows 
versions. You can even download the software from the web site.

    The web site is, in my opinion confusing. A person who is now using 
Windows goes to the Ubuntu site and the first thing he has to do is 
decide if he wants a Desktop or Server version, whatever those are! 
Later he is given the choice to get Kubntu whatever THAT IS!

    My suggestion is to make the first page nothing but a Desktop 
version that will replace the Windows with time. It is one d/l of a 
LiveCD that will run if your computer has Windows XP on it. Then the 
next pages introduce the special versions for a special purpose. There 
have been several complainers on this list that d/l the server and never 
got a Desktop :-)

    Also I think the penalty for using a Desktop as a server is VERY 
small and has advantages. The explanation will be simple and anyone can 
do it.
