I’ve only spent any real time with Ubuntu ( mepis.org/ ). Was using Ubuntu as mostly a server computer and Mepis as my desktop.
I haven’t booted into Linux for the longest time and I couldn’t remember why I stopped (until last night). I was loving things until I had trouble figuring out how to get Pinyin input working on Mepis.
Mepis is Debian based, so if there’s an easy way to do it that I somehow overlooked, that’d work too. Otherwise, I wouldn’t mind trying out a version of Linux that’s “Chinese Friendly” out of the box.
I think I remember someone saying Fedora was pretty Chinese friendly out of the box. Or if getting Chinese to work in Ubuntu is easy, maybe I’d switch to using that as my desktop OS.
The *nix bug is biting me again, time to do something different…
