Re: Do You LIke Or Use Ubuntu? - Read This!
Ubuntu can be made into as hardcore as any other so called hardcore distros. In fact Ubuntu makes it easier to compile your own stuff, even for a relative novice, compiling nvidia driver, mplayer etc. (try installing nvidia driver on the Fedora 12 and you will see my point) is far easier than on so called veteran distros and when we talk about speed, performance etc. all the benchmarks done at Phoronix has broken the so called myth of a high performance self complied veteran distro and so called noob distro like Ubuntu. Every tests done there showed Ubuntu to be as quick as the other expert distros and the few it lagged behind, it was in insignificant numbers.
