Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu During my 8 years of Linux on and off usage I have tried more distros than I have chocolate bars. Each one of my previous encounters meant that I had to spend at least 2 days configuring before I have a desktop that I was somewhat comfortable with. With Ubuntu Feisty Fawn's latest test beta --for the first time ever-- this was not the case. I was up and running with all the niceties I wanted within 2 hours.

apt-get in debian etch supports diff package list updating. So when you apt-get update it will be the full list the first time 4-5MB like the article says. And then next time it only needs to download around 100kB .diff's to it.

Has this feature not included in Ubuntu?
