Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu MadPenguin takes a look at Flight 5 of Ubuntu Dapper, and concludes: "All in all, Ubuntu 6.06 is gearing up to be quite an impressive release. Granted, I saw some bugs during my stay on the distribution, but can I really complain? It's not a full release, so it deserves some breathing room. Considering some of the horribly authored software I've looked at over the years, I feel that Ubuntu in pre-release form is more stable than other distros when they reach final release status. It's not quite in the league of Slackware and Red Hat/Fedora in that respect yet, but it's surely getting there in a hurry."

Sure, it's a nice distro for the average homeuser that is new to linux and wants everything done with wizards, but once they get more experienced they will move to another distro.

It is also nice for for people (like me) who've been using linux for 6-7 years (and other *nix OS's before that), tried just about every distro out there, has worked as a linux sysadmin for several companies, has done just about any configuration setup you can think of using vi and /etc and just wants a simple solid workstation OS that works with a minimum of fuss.
