Anyone tried Ubuntu yet?

That is my distro of choice, and I've been running it for almost 2 years
without any issues. Xastir is located in the repositories, and there is
excellent how-to instructions for building it from source in the Xastir
wiki.

http://www.xastir.org/wiki/index.php/HowTo:Ubuntu_6.10

Ubuntu is an all around great distribution on top of that.
