I didn't say I get the WOW feeling from Ubuntu but obviously it does enough things differently for me to prefer it over, say, OpenSUSE. Yes I've tried (Open)SUSE, Fedora, Slackware, Mandrake/driva etc but I still prefer Ubuntu.
Why? Mostly "soft" values like "i just like how it works", "it feels right" and such. It does also help that it has always worked well out of the box for me.
Like it or not, "soft" values matter tremendously. It's like music. I cant give you any facts on exactly why I like, say, Black Sabbath, I just do.
