Wanna succeed? Just clone Linux Mint, or better yet, replace all your leadership with Linux Mint leadership.

You completely lost your charter, and actually never had it since as long as I've been trying Ubuntu.

More people use Ubuntu than any other distro on the desktop, so I am not sure how you come to that conclusion

Yes, last I checked(10.04), Mint was cloning Ubuntu, and doing it so badly that you had to full reinstall to upgrade from release to release.

Ubuntu has a distinctive desktop - nevermore so than now with the new Unity Desktop. Which I feel was a brave and bold departure from the norm.

I personally like Unity and believe that Ubuntu is moving in the right direction.

I cannot comment on Unity as I haven't tried it, but yet again there are some goddamn awful bugs in this release. A showstopper bug in readahead which forced me to use livecd to get it fixed, and a random-reboot-every-now-and-then bug which I have no idea what is causing it.

I don't know why but it's always the same, every new release sports a new, exciting bug for me..
