"Ubuntu is more than just debian testing with open office, have you used th new network manager? THAT is (was) a new, unique feature."

Not...really. This is Ubuntu's list of new features in NetworkManager in 8.10:

* system wide settings (i.e., no need to log in in order to get a connection)
* management of 3G connections (GSM/CDMA)
* management of multiple active devices at once
* management of PPP and PPPOE connections
* management of devices with static IP configurations
* route management for devices

Mandriva's drakconnect and net_applet have supported all of those features, for years (except route management).
