[nSLUG] Thoughts on Ubuntu....

I really, really like it.  I was looking for a no-fuss distro to throw
on my laptop because with my current schedule I have no time to tinker
as I normally would.

The installation was flawless for me, hardware detection perfect (even
with broadcom and centrino).  My only major complaint so far is that
editing the menus is a complete pain.  This is actually a flaw in Gnome
2.10 itself more than Ubuntu specifically.

Given my past experience with Dell laptops and Linux I was pleasantly
surprised and I find it suiting me very well for a dev workstation.
