I don't see how Ubuntu is the "most advanced". Most Mac alike, yes, but that's only if you like Mac design.
ubuntu's better known for its libraries and regex understanding.

I've used Ubuntu and I felt nothing advanced about it, it just annoyed me after some time.
I have never seen or used Ubuntu however being bit of a linux zealot I'm suprised I've never heard of Ubuntu supposedly being the most advanced?
I have Ubuntu (K) on my laptop, alongside Gentoo and Windows XP. Haven't used it in weeks, and the only reason it's on there is because Ububtu was the only distro that configured *itself* without intnervention.
It's very bloated.. Good for newbies.
Yeah, Ubuntu is a wonderful attempt to bring the linux desktop to the end user. It has a robust set of tools for the newbie to configure their computer without having to know much. The other big plus is that being based off of debian Sid it has access to one of the widest arrays of software available.
It's just not my cup of tea. It installs way too much junk. I prefer to have control over what is on my system and how my system runs.
Besides that I dislike sudo* and Ubuntu's configuration system.
* Yes, I know how to set Ubuntu into "root mode", but it causes other complications down the line (if you like me prefer KDE over Gnome).
yeah, sudo is a pain. As you said, you can set it to use root, but with all the hassle, I prefer just to stick to my Debian Sid or Gentoo install.
It still is a good way to bring in new users and many Mac users feel more comfortable with the sudo setup.
anyway, to each their own (as it always is in the linux world)

Lunix is great except for the user base, who are mostly insane.
Begone, Devil! Lest you want me to release my army of ninja penguins! Mwhahahahaaa!
as i said, i dont use Lunux.i use Linux. right now hooked up a 500 gig extern with external raid on lappie running solaris server on it.
mandriva 2006 is the best,very nice design
I am in MDK10.1
waiting for Mandriva2006
2006 RC2 is quite buggy. Problems with USB and virtual networking. If I were you I'd wait out till some mid December.
Meanwhile Mandriva 2005 (10.2) is very stable and enjoyable.
Why particularly do U use KDE, its a system HOG
I have heard MDV2006 will be out before october ?
I am waiting for Hibernation in Linux, Any idea about it ?
Is there any Linux Wishlist , where we can vote and submit our most wanted linux features ?
Maybe because I have enough system power and KDE looks pretty. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! I like it pretty.
When I need to do some serious CPU consuming tasks I do it from Fluxbox.
Yes, but I want to give it time to root out some particular bugs I came across while using RC2
FluxBox , whats that ? I can google but ....
A lightweight and very tasteful window manager.
