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."

RE[3]: Cheap shots at Windows

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.

Come on, now, it's a very common practice to compare alternatives to the market leader. There's nothing unprofessional about it.

You're just allergic to any criticism of Windows, especially if it's to put Linux in a favorable light.

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.

Jeez, man, let it go already. You sound like a freakin' fanboy. Who cares if the author is proved wrong or not? Who cares if a respected market research firm has recently said that half of the PCs out there are too old to run Vista? You really sound as if you had a personal stake in Vista being a you own MS shares, by any chance?
