I could not agree more...I use lots of different linux distros...more
all the time with the advent of Virtualization... but Ubuntu is by far
the easiest to get setup and configured. Combined with the support
options and the general polish that Ubuntu brings to the table...I
wouldn't want to change unless there was some major instability or speed
issue...and that's certainly not the case with 10.04.

 Personally, I hate the buttons on the left...its a major usability
issue for me on a desktop system...but it took all of 45 seconds to
rectify...including the google search!

Besides, the wonderful thing about linux systems is that they are so
customizable...I have to change dozens of things to suit my
preferences...regardless of the distro (I prefer vlc to totem, gvim to
gedit, I need to install dev tools... and who keeps the default
wallpaper? The list goes on and on...)

In my mind, it doesn't make much difference if the buttons are on the
left...move them to the right.

If there is a complaint to be made, it is that Gnome doesn't provide
good enough GUI tools for customizing and/or creating themes...but
that's case no matter what distro you are using.

Anyway, just my two cents.
