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.

I can't hear this arguments any more. It's the same if people referring to GNOME as the "average homeuser" Desktop and KDE or a "cool" windowmanager like openbox for the professional user.

Professional user doesn't want to play the whole day with the system they want to work with the system. The difference between the "professional user" and the "average homeuser" is not that the professional user want to tinker the whole day on the system and the average user want to work. Both want to work! The difference is what they do with their machine.

I'm using GNU/Linux for many years. In my first years it was fun to try different distributions, WMs/DMs, work with Debian unstable... But by and by i just want a system that works so i can focus on the really exciting tasks and i switched to a "ready to work" distribution (fedora). With Drapper i will probably give Ubuntu a try because i liked always Debian, deb etc.
