Ahhh.....Fedora/RHEL/CentOS....my home turf. I can configure those distros with my eyes closed from the command-line. But familiarity breeds contempt, so I have been experimenting like crazy.

Ubuntu UE did nothing for me. It was a huge download topped buy a very slow boot up off the live CD (within a VM), followed up by an excruciating long install into a large chuck of HD space. To add insult to injury, I found the default desktop to be crowded, busy and confusing as heck.

I can see why people like UE. Everything, including WINE to run all your windows apps, is included in a default install. Me...I am finding that simple is better, and besides, nothing is much more than an apt-get install away (YUM Install for all you RH derivative users).
