Good breakdown

I like it when a reviewer is honest and does not come off with the usual.....

"OOOOOOh it rocks. Ubuntu is amzing, Windows is pants, format all the Windows machines"

There will always be problems, and sometimes problems need to be highlighted, even if it is just to give an idea of the issues someone might face when trying it themselves.

The grass is not always greener!

What do you think this is, /.?!

J/K, even here there's always that risk.
(And I do love /. ...I read it almost as often as OSN. Osn looks so much nicer on my Blackberry though...)

I agree - we need far more honest reviews that actually REVIEW...For God's Sake, this is an entire OPERATING SYSTEM (well, a distro...but still...)

It's nice to see a SYSTEM reviewed with hardware mentioned more than in passing.
