Ubuntu - not the best.

Ubuntu doesn't come ready for use. Mepis does, with Mepis you hit the ground running and never look back. I'll never understand how this one distro became Linux golden boy.

Mepis was out long before this. I don't know somethings fishy about all this. Maybe I'm just to parinod because of Microsoft. (I can see Ubuntu go the way of Microsoft)

This was originally supposed to be an ubuntu news, but if you need to start a flame war to bring atention to that crappy distro that claims to be user friendly then here u go...

I installed Mepis about two weeks ago just to give it a try,

Hardware support for my pc was ok but then...
I saw the ugliest most cluttered kde desktop I've ever seen
Updating or even installing new programs from the default mirrors was a nightmare, I've never seen so many error messages on synaptic before(Unless enabling the Debian Repositories that changed almost all packages from MEPIS to Debian)

If u don't like Ubuntu don't use it, but I'll take my (K)Ubuntu anytime
