Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) arrived just a few days ago with promises of better hardware compatibility, included proprietary software and drivers, and more user friendliness. Was it wort the wait? And more importantly - Is it finally time to "Make the Switch"?" Read the review here. Elsewhere, "First thoughts on Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn" was published at ZDNet. Update: A reply article to the two linked above.

Sorry if I got a flame war started. AFIK the reason the "root" account was disabled was to prevent new users moving to Linux from destroying their OS?

While this might be a good thing, wouldn't it be better to keep Linux Systems the same as far as the structure of the file systems and teach users HOW to use them properly.

Linux is a great Operating System and getting better all the time. Changes are bound to happen as it progresses and Ubuntu/Kubuntu et al are very good distros.

However, there are already mulitiple differences in Linux in general and doesn't this Sudo thing just add another fragmentation to the mix?

Now Parallels and other devs are going to have to deal with new uneeded file system structures and names in addition to .rpm/.deb/targz etc. Seems counterproductive?
