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."

Can't a Linux distro review just be a Linux distro review without throwing in some cheap shots at Windows?

The real question is: why do you care?

Because it cheapens the entire image of the article. If I were writing a review of an ASUS motherboard, I wouldn't throw in cheap shots about Gigabyte/DFI -- it's unprofessional.

And the author is still completely off about Vista's requirements. I guess he'll be in for an unpleasant surprise when all these people with aging machines install Vista, and it runs fine, along with fancy graphics. What a lonely day that will be for him indeed.

If you only say that porsche is very fast - then everyone say ok - it is. But when it's faster then Lambordgini - then they go WoW - that's cool ;) . All human kind strive on competition and rivalry, so why not sell few punches towards easy (not yet released! therefore cannot defend itself) adversary ? It's really easy - do you guys wonder why is sport so popular ? Becouse of the competition. It wouldn't strive on it's own like it does now without 'who beat who' factor, and since Microsoft isn't exactly the one who is fragile tiny weakling here ... "let the killing begin" ;)
