Windows Two negative reviews of Vista RC1. First off, CRN says: "Microsoft is making its first Vista release candidate and pricing information more broadly available to partners and consumers this week. Solution providers who have seen it say it's not yet ready for prime time." Our favourite Microsoft Apple Microsoft zealot Paul Thurrot posted the 2nd part of his RC1 review: "Overall, Windows Vista is a stunning bit of work. But the devil is in the details, as they say, and Microsoft has never been very good at consistency and that final bit of polish that separates something competent from something wonderful." In the meantime, one of Vista's lead developers has left Microsoft.

I've been using Debian Sid on my other box since 2001. I've never run into any serious problem. I do upgrades every day. So I believe what you say about Ubuntu. You can thank Debian for that ;)

I once had Debian on my system and apt-get completely fouled it up, though it may have been a PEBKAC.

I do (: Ubuntu is greatly indebted to Debian, and I hope that the issues raised by those developers who have left Debian of late are not as serious as the media hype seems to suggest.

Unfortunately, when I tried to do the upgrade from Ubuntu 5.10 to 6.06 using their graphical apt-get wrapper, it failed and left my system unbootable.
