"Ubuntu is more than just debian testing with open office, have you used th new network manager? THAT is (was) a new, unique feature."

Not...really. This is Ubuntu's list of new features in NetworkManager in 8.10:

* system wide settings (i.e., no need to log in in order to get a connection)
* management of 3G connections (GSM/CDMA)
* management of multiple active devices at once
* management of PPP and PPPOE connections
* management of devices with static IP configurations
* route management for devices

Mandriva's drakconnect and net_applet have supported all of those features, for years (except route management).

I was refering to it being new and unique compared to debian

But if what you say is true regarding 3G support 'for years' they should have publicised this FAR more, as I for one was unaware of it

We publicised it back when it got added - in 2004 or 2005, somewhere around there - but we kinda figured people would expect it to be around after that, and be surprised if it wasn't. Ah, well.
