Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "In this post I show step-by-step how you can setup your own "Super computer cluster" using Ubuntu MPI Cluster from multiple machines with the goal of bruteforcing strong encrypted passwords with John the Ripper for academic purposes. Owners of quad core machines will also benefit from this setup as the "john" binaries found in the Ubuntu Repositories are compiled to run on only one core. I managed to decrease the time required to crack password hashes using this setup."

I'm pretty sure I was getting nagware about installing them when I was "road testing" Ubuntu Server.

Having installed some 15 or so Ubuntu Server (both 10.04 and 10.10) in the last couple of months I can say: no, you didnt.
I do belevie you get a question about automatic updates but I think the default choice is not to enable them.
Maybe you got it confused with CentOS ;)

I still think you're over baking your argument massive by calling CentOS a "monstrosity"

I just REALLY don't like CentOS, how it works and is configured and what it's defaults are.
