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."

The updates come by themselves in most linux distros as well. As far as getting errors while updating, that hasn't happened to me since I was running Debian unstable on a test machine years ago.

I will not make any daft statements about linux being superior to OS X in usability (which is subjective anyway), but judging from your comments you haven't read the article and are basically Mac-trolling in a linux thread.

As far as *on topic* comments are concerned, Drake looks to be a leap forward for Ubuntu. I don't think I'll be making it my default desktop just yet, but I was able to run it as a workstation for a couple of weeks without hitting any showstoppers.

I try to give distros an "honest" workout when I try them, which means running only that distro on my workstation for at least a week and seeing whether it has an effect on my workflow. If it hinders my ability to do work, then I will simply stop using it; that wasn't necessary with Drake.
