Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Canonical's Ubuntu 6.06 LTS is an excellent Linux-based operating system - so excellent, in fact, that it not only earned eWEEK Labs' Analyst's Choice designation but has also become our clear favorite among Linux desktop distributions. This latest Ubuntu release, which became available in June, has won our ardor with a tight focus on desktop usability; an extremely active, helpful and organized user community; and a software installation and management framework that's unsurpassed on any OS platform."

"For example, Gnome's system preferences are put together as a series of small dialogues rather than as part of a coherent and functioning whole."

Ubuntu has a level of quality approaching that of commercial OSes.

"From what I've seen, I find that highly debatable at best."


Your initial arguments dont support your conclusion. Its biggest competitor, Windows control panel, is also a series of small dialogues - often times bearing no similarites whatsoever.

That's not to defend GNOME particularly, the control area could be better, but in comparison to the popular OS you can't honestly say they are behind in terms of design.
