Hey your starting the flame fest here. Not me. For all its worth ubuntu is no better than Mandrake, Fedora, or Gentoo all of them you have to fix to before you can use it.

Mepis, Lycoris, Linspire, PCLinuxOS all these can be used from the get go. That's why I don't understand why ubuntu has become the darling of Linux. There's linux distro's out there that are far better.

Then explain what makes(to your opinion) Mepis better than (K)Ubuntu I already mentioned some of the things I didn't liked about Mepis, and I don't count bundled propietary software as a valid one just in case
