Ubuntu is not a religion

Edgy is buggy...get used to it. Congratulations if you installed it successfully but the upgrade does not work. Just read the forum or visit the IRC channel to see how it just does not work.

Open source, linux and Ubuntu are merely tools to get things done. If those tools require hours of work arounds or extensive knowledge of sophisticated terminal commands, then how good a tool is it?

I upgraded from Dapper to Edgy (a 24 hour download and configuration ordeal) that crashed my entire system. A later attempt to do a fresh install didn't crash, but nothing worked right.

I've returned to Dapper on a virtual machine.
Dapper works for just about everybody! Edgy doesn't for a lot of people.

Until Ubuntu is flawless (and it's only 89 percent there) I'm sticking with a combination of XP and Dapper.
