I just installed Ubuntu 6.06.1 on a desktop PC (Dell Optiplex) that had a hyperthreading P4 chip in it and I disappointingly got a single processor kernel installed (an "i386" one at that!). I don't have access to a dual core desktop (but these are becoming increasing common), but it would be equally disappointing if a dual core desktop ended up with a single processor kernel as well.

Yes, I can use synaptic to download an i686 SMP kernel (called "linux", which threw me a bit, being used to kernel packages being called "kernel" :-) ), but I'm not sure all of Ubuntu's target audience would be that clueful.

And don't get me started as to why Ubuntu installs the ssh client by default, but not the ssh server (like people don't own 2 PCs or ever want to ssh into their Ubuntu box from other machines?). Either Ubuntu should install neither the client nor the server or it should install both of them, but it actually installs only one of the two! Yep, another synaptic download to the rescue again...
