Oh you didn't know?
Well, it is for sure a TERRIFIC distro. It's got some glitches, of course (like the ipv6 thing and so on) but that doesn't matter at all. And it doesn't because of this forum.
I've been using different Linuxes the past 7 years, and have tried a lot of them for sure. Some I've thrown away after less then a day, others I've kept to play with. Since I've tried that many, I've also been a member of a lot of boards and communities, but none of them have been like this one, I've never met so many helpful people that has the ability to write such great, informative answers. And this activity, I mean, how old ARE this distro?? One could believe it's been around for decades.
What I'm trying to say is, that a lot of the distro's I quickly threw away might have been superior to Ubuntu, but I never found out because the lack of info and the ways to get through those first steps when trying to correct this little errors. Well, in Ubuntu it took a few days on this forum and the workstations are glowing..
I'm just running through a university course in Gothenburg called "OpenSource Free software". We've had a lot of discussions about what makes projects succesful, and I'll say the community that backs it. A technical superior piece of software is nothing without the community, and the ubuntu-people are definietly some of the best!
cheers to you all warthogs!
