Ultimate Edition: Not so ultimate

"After this, another icon appeared in the system tray and told me I needed to reboot to complete the installation. As if Windows weren't bad enough with its "Let's restart needlessly" attitude, I was now being asked to restart the whole system instead of simply restarting xorg."

Erm, has this person even used Vanilla Ubuntu? The comments about restarting the entire machine after installing the restricted graphics drivers (and some updates) seem a bit odd, seeing as, last time i checked, the same was required under vanilla ubuntu (although I havn't tried under Hardy yet). I'm guessing this is mostly releated to initialisation of the kernel level module.
