“Nearly worthy of all the hype!” concludes CapnKirby on his – admitted a bit late – test of Ubuntu 5.10

Ok gang, I'll admit it, I've been avoiding this one. Simple answer is I usually try to go with the small operations, not the biggest and most popular. Ubuntu sitting on the top of DistroWatch for months now just didn't encourage me to want to review it.
I know, I'm weird.
The problem is, before Ubuntu launched it's way to the top of the Linux pile (clearly several fuzzy critters ago and pre-capnkirby.com), I did try it and found it quite usable, I even described it as being one of the best Gnome implementations I had ever encountered. So, when the laptop install got to feeling slow, I figured it was time to play.
