No.  and I came up the same way as far as computers go except I never owned a 
windows machine.  I worked on them alot, still do, but never had the desire 
to own one of those nasty machines.  My Amiga 4000 ran a three line BBS for 
eight years with 21 minutes of downtime.  Ubuntu and actually more Kubuntu 
have very much the feel of the Amiga but I still miss the ease and 
multitasking abilities of the Amiga.  Nothing so far beats it although 
Kubuntu comes as close as anything I have found to date.  I quite believe you 
will really enjoy this distro and I've been hearing Jackalope has 
straightened out most of the KDE4 problems if you want an Amigalike desktop 
which should be ready by the end of the month.
