I find it very interesting how people diss Ubuntu because it's not akin to Windows/OSX. Can I just reiterate that Ubuntu is not Windows/OSX?

Ubuntu and other non-commercial Linux distros aren't marketed as immensely as Win/OSX, and in no way did they ever intend to make the whole world use their distros (I've read a comment that assumed Ubuntu wanted the world to use it).

It is a testament to how much Ubuntu has grown, though, that people make these assumptions and is highly critical of it (as with any other high-profile product, Windows and OSX included).
