The thing is that the experience gained by those other distros is the very reason why ubuntu is so popular...

Ubuntu was concieved to be a user friendly general purpose distro from the begining...

Has a clear idea of the overall goals of the project, something that many of the older distributions lack...

Maintains a regular release cycle...

It uses the debian Core but remains updated (Each new release is more updated than Debian testing, at the time of release)

When a new release arrives they just don't inmediatelly pull the plug on the older one...

PS: I'm a native spanish speaker, just in case my english needs improving...
