Other distros worth considering are Kubuntu and Slackware which I
use. Both of these use the more Windows-like KDE interface by
default. Slackware also allows a choice of several simplified
interfaces. And if the author has not blocked it I can highlight
and copy text from a pdf, a web page etc. into my favorite editor
I can install Slackware from DVD a lot faster than I was able to
install Kubuntu or Ubuntu. But I have been doing it for a while.
IMO the Gnome interface featured on Debian and its variant Ubuntu
is idiosyncratic and harder to use. But "de gustibus non disputandum
est " etc. (roughly there is no disputing about taste).
