Re: Best linux distro for t410/t410

hi all,
I'm writing this post with my Lenovo thinkPad T410 running Kubuntu 14.10 plasma 4 (my girlfriend has chose this distro, because its name was nicer than antix or opensuse..)
Well, all keys work (fn + brightness, light, wifi on/off ect ect), the touchpad is awesome (scroll with two fingers, pinch to zoom and the texture is really confortable). Works the red muose + its keys, too.
therefore, the hardware is all compatibe with this distro.
About the performance I can't say a lot, because I have used this laptop only with internet and mails.
In conclusion I suggest KUBUNTU for T410i, in the next days I will try kubuntu with battery (now it is only AC power). I will try the other two distro next month (I hope), because now I'm studing a lot so I can't install, format, reinstall, test....
This distro works very fine, I'm satisfied!

I think you are right. I tryed other distros but after less than 3 hours,my ubuntu liveUSB was already reinstalling its system in my t410i. I have always used ubuntu distros and are perfect for my jobs.
UBUNTU IS THE BEST (for me).

This is really not a good question. The best distro for that machine is the one you like the best. If you like KDe, try netrunner.

umbunto is clumsy, fat, difficult to work with and based on a debian backend that comes with its own issue.

Stay awau from Umbuntu and all that.  Use a real OS.

hi and thank you for your reply. I'm watching about netrunner, but i see that it is based on debian Kubuntu. So what are the difference between kubuntu and netrunner??

There is another netrunner that runs on an arch backend, but really, it is best NOT locked into a particular interface and use something like opensuse, and load up a whole buch of window managers.  The best window manager might be wmaker, fancey keys be **bleep**.

Manjaro is very good as well

Oh one more thing, this is a lousy way to learn about Linux. Find a local user group. or start one.

yes, I see that there is a version based on arch, but I haven't got enough time to try new environments different debian like arch which is little more difficult than debian to upgrade and settings. With debian I have just to click (or write a command line) and all run alone. so I would prefer the ubuntu version.
