I think I'm done hassling Ubuntu..
I have installed 5.04 before and I was almost disgusted with apt, mad about sudo, etc. etc. but I found a really nifty guide called The Unofficial Ubuntu Starters Guide or something of that affect. I read it front to back a couple of times and wow.. adding the backports alone made me like apt a whole lot more and Ubuntu is starting to grow on me, I think it needs a bit more work though.
I was impressed with all the codecs I found with apt, VLC player and apt solved all of the libs and dependencies, etc. I'm starting to like this more and more. I usually don't go for the "newb" distros, I'm a *BSD kind of person but Ubuntu makes Debian enjoyable.
I'm finally going to quit hating on Ubuntu.
Oh and sudo isn't too bad in Ubuntu if you know what you are doing, I did make a root account the moment I booted into X. There are two things that bug me though: I _cannot_ get into CLI and I am not finding any ATI drivers (I was expeting no ATI drivers though).
Any Ubuntu fans here? I think I am going to keep this on here until SuSE 10 comes out.
EDIT: w00t, I just installed the ATI drivers.Registered Linux user #393103
Yeh im using Ubuntu and also like it as you have said it like debian just more polish for the desktop. Im just using the radeon xorg drivers but im not a gamer.
Same exact experience--Ubuntu drove me nuts until I found the Ubuntu Guide. Now it's my primary OS.
I'm still waiting to try a newer version.Registered Linux user #270181

Ubuntu is good. I use it because on my current setup I can't get Debian sarge to run well for whatever reason and Ubuntu works perfect. Kind of stuck with it but I also like it alot. The only thing that I have an issue with is the compiling of source. It doesn't handle that too well but it's all good because I can usually find it in another format in binary. Anyway, glad you saw the light GH.
I've become a bit of a snob recently, unless something us for the server I like to see a bootsplash theme. I could work happily all day without X, and boot messages are helpful but if something is for the desktop and especially for new users - I just like to see a bootsplash.
