Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Canonical's Ubuntu 6.06 LTS is an excellent Linux-based operating system - so excellent, in fact, that it not only earned eWEEK Labs' Analyst's Choice designation but has also become our clear favorite among Linux desktop distributions. This latest Ubuntu release, which became available in June, has won our ardor with a tight focus on desktop usability; an extremely active, helpful and organized user community; and a software installation and management framework that's unsurpassed on any OS platform."

"The three pages are not worth reading. Really."

Then don't read the 3 pages, seriously.

"We found Ubuntu's default GNOME 2.14.2 desktop environment complete and easy to use.

Aha... and why? Please explain it. You can't? You don't want to? If you won't/can't do it, then please do not publish anything at all. "

If you don't share their opinion then fine, but the reviewers liked how Gnome was setup in Ubuntu, it's an opinion, it is not right or wrong. Just because you disagree with it does not make it wrong.

"Sudo is a plain disaster and forcing the crappy sudo approach on users is a no-go imho. (No, you cannot restore a complete (!) root environment in Ubuntu). "

Then turn sudo off, I did, and now I can log in as root, or when I have an admin task when I am a normal user, I enter root's password instead of my own. all you have to do is open a root terminal and use passwd to set roots password, and low and below, it works. Then after you do that, just:

Open System --> Administration --> Login Screen Setup

Click on the security tab

Check Allow root login

and voila, instant root environment. So there is a way, and it's not too hard. Feel free to do some research before you post such nonsense
