Pleasantly Surprised

I had purchased SUSE Linux desktop previously and installed it on my Dell 4600c. I was frustrated by the trouble I had getting this install to work, and more frustrated with the volumonous documentation. I stumbled across Hoary by accident and thought why not, it sounds good. It installed perfectly, 1st try dual boot with WinXP. I've since upgraded to Breezy and it just works. All hardware was identified and installed correctly by both distros. The ease of adding packages with adaptic is amazing. I'm quickly becoming a Linux user instead of a Linux dabbler thanks to Ubuntu!

Samba

Installed Samba and after some reading, it was not too difficult to set up a basic server setup with my music, pictures and video files. Much faster than windows peer to peer and secure too! New but trying! Love Ubuntu.The Ubuntu guide covered this quite nicely.
