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.

Woefully unpolished, yes unfortunately.
The big problem as I see it is that the typical Linux user doesn't seem to care about things like polish, design and professional looks. So the maintainers of Ubuntu or any other distro probably won't change in this regard. I really like Linux - under the hood. I just wish it would look really good out of the box, but like I said, I have this feeling that most users don't care. Or, even worse, actually say things like Gnome looks good out of the box etc.
