After 3 or 4 Ubuntu in a row, I begin to be really bored with this distro.
Since a long time nothing really exiting comes out to us distract from "Next time you will get...." I heard this too long from another "$"ystem.
Of course it works, of course the devs are tip-top, of course it's a solid distrib, but and there is a but: what else ? nothing or so few, people coming to the Linux world expect a bit more fantasy or creativity.
Just tell me why I fell so bored, it's maybe just an impression that gutsy is just a feisty + or a debian ++ ?...

You tell us why you're so bored? What other OS has these "exciting changes" you speak of?

And your next question will be
This distrib don't have this or that so why you change ?
As I have to explain ...
No I won't, because I express an opinion and after a large support to Ubuntu I don't feel excited any more, that's it.
I have recently installed a Debian unstable and saw not much difference, but a better performance, and no special tool that I don't get there, so what's the point ? Why so much about Ubuntu? Now the egg or the hen witch one came first I don't care.
Just to point that a lot is said about Ubuntu, but after 4 release they all look the same.
just one point by distro :suse have yast, mandriva draktools, debian apt-get, redhat-fedora...and so on Ubuntu have c,e,k,x etc buntu like a long movie without a star, or a story...
Is that enough ?

This is the biggest release of Ubuntu as long as I've been using it. The last release was good for its codec handling and, for me, read/write HFS+. You might be bored by it, but it tipped the balance for me to make it my primary OS.

I'm particularly excited about this next release - Compiz, X-Windows config, metadata search, better printing, slimming down the preferences apps - those are all things you'll benefit from immediately.

A little, rarely mentioned thing like read/write NTFS might be all some users need to stop booting their Windows partition after Feisty.
