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.

That part of your post struck me as inaccurate, too.

I have been using Ubuntu since Dapper (currently on Edgy), using the Canadian repos, and "apt-get update" always fetches updates that are a few kilobytes in size, nowhere near 5 MB.

If you're getting 5 MB every single time you update, something is wrong (or strange, at least).
