Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu During my 8 years of Linux on and off usage I have tried more distros than I have chocolate bars. Each one of my previous encounters meant that I had to spend at least 2 days configuring before I have a desktop that I was somewhat comfortable with. With Ubuntu Feisty Fawn's latest test beta --for the first time ever-- this was not the case. I was up and running with all the niceties I wanted within 2 hours.

...So what? They can just automate the creation of the diffs. Instead of people downloading a few 100kB diffs, they'll download a megabyte of diffs, perhaps? Better than 4-5MB every time I run apt-get update.

Have they really run an analysis that says redownloading everything will be faster?
