PCLinuxOS vs. Ubuntu: Picking the Best Distro

First off, I'm by and large a full-time Ubuntu user. However, I'm also one of their most vocal critics for becoming so detached from their core market as well.
I wasn't able to find a conclusion in the review??


The PCLinuxOS Approach. When I started off looking for support from their wiki for my NVIDIA card, I ended up using the search box as a means to locate the support I was looking for. Why this was needed remains beyond me, but this is hardly the only distro to show this fault.

A fast search for NVIDIA brought me to this page . Great! This is exactly what I was looking for, it's just a shame I had to 'search' for it rather than logically adding it into their quickstart guide.

The Ubuntu Approach. Now for the same query, this time on Ubuntu. Right off, we seem to be missing any sort of search box – fantastic. So after using Google's domain search of all things, I finally located this page . Alright, so the big question is why it took Google for me, pretending to be a Windows user looking to install restricted video drivers into Ubuntu, to get the job done?
