Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "I must say that both of these distros have pleased me a lot and completely suffice my requirement of a home desktop system. Both automatically detected all my hardware and had installed the drivers required. However, when it comes to comparing the two, I get a little biased towards the more polished distro." Elsewhere, it is reported that Ubuntu's new Linux version sports a debugging tool.

I think much of his focus is just on aesthetics.. nice article.. but not what you judge a platform on.


I disagree. Apple has made aesthetics their defining characteristic and have made great gains just for the look of their products, even when those products offer fewer features or don't perform as well as other products.

I disagree.. while Apple does pay a huge amount of attention to aesthetics, the larger thrust is at usability. With a Mac( i also have an iBook) things just work. One doesn't spend time doing configuration. You spend your time getting a task done. For an author to dis Ubuntu based on a splash screen, or a login manager .. is petty at best. I also believe that comparing Apples aesthetics in an discussion of splash screens and login managers re: Uboingo or Suzy is apples(HAH!)and oranges.
