Once I tried to return back to Windows XP, but I failed it for one day. Windows Xp was too uncomfortable to my normal life.

10. Bandwidth utilization

To be honest, the only thing that really sets it apart from other distros is that it has Synaptics. Also, for me at least, it just works. Which is actually rather boring, so I move about. But the forums are v. good.

apt isn't anywhere near as good as conary in this respect.

Debian springs to mind.

I wonder why when people are referring to the package management system, they call it "Synaptic". It's just a front-end. I suppose it's similar to calling Ogg Vorbis files "OGG" files.

Triple booting Windows Vista,Ubuntu and Mac (Leo Kaly). Broweser is FX 3 and safari.

Monitored the 256 Kbps connectivity for several days in Vista and Ubuntu using FX3 and found Ubuntu is more capable to download from speed test sites. Not even in a single attempt vista gone ahead of the Ubuntu ( Atleast 24-28 attempts)

No not the way I did in Vista and Ubuntu, but I have to agree that safari in Mac is faster tan anything (I hate that bu it is true)
