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."

They tend to miss out gnome features, gnome nice backgrounds as default, missing preferences, gtk-icon-cache (which they ONLY have just done).

THey really should put nautilus beagle search in there are well, it's so fast and powerful, beagle is better then spotlight in may respects so I heard. Ubuntu misses out on these feature and god knows why they dont enable nautilus beagle.

Nautilus is compiled with Beagle support. Beagle isn't installed by default because Mono won't fit on the CD.

Now if Beagle were written in C/C++ like it should be...

Like is should be?, nobody has do it in C thats why it's in C#, what difference would it make being done in C?

By the way, the overhead of mono is smaller now and mono apps perform just as good as C apps.
