Ubuntu Lucid Lynx: free OS that Just Works

,----[ Quote ]
| So there you have it: Ubuntu: It Just Works. 
| Install it, spend two weeks wondering where 
| the cutlery drawer is, watch it disappear. 
| Thereafter, only notice it when it does 
| something amazing, like flawless OS updates or 
| very simple transfers to new machines. 


Quit Expecting Ubuntu To Be Perfect 

,----[ Quote ]
| I followed the news-feed links to the latest 
| post at OMG! Ubuntu! (LOLOMGWTF!!!!
| 111eleventy-one) and as soon as I saw the 
| opening sentence thunder that Ubuntu was "a 
| steaming pile of mediocrity," I said to 
| myself, "Gee, I wonder if this is going to be 
| a fair, balanced evaluation?"
