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."

"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."

Please tell me, where Ubuntus Gnome is better/different from Archs, Debians or any other systems Gnome? Gnome is Gnome. Period. And what they did is telling me that Ubuntus Gnome is superior without giving me ANY example what makes it superior to other distros Gnome. I have tested 6.06 and I am not impressed at all.

"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"

I guess you don't know enough about the fine details in the underlying system in Ubuntu and Debian and don't even know what I was referring to. It is not about enabling a root login but about the way root works in Ubuntu. Use a pure Debian system for a while and perform some administrative things as root there, then try to recreate that in Ubuntu. Chances are that you will get stuck somewhere. ;) No, I am not talking nonsense but I speak from experience. Ubuntu has the sudo solution built into the underlying system so much that you cannot get fully rid of it and this blocks some administrative possibilities for a normal root acount.
