Ten sticking points for new Ubuntu users

Posted by: Anonymous [ip:] on June 28, 2008 04:12 AM
Most of these points have already been solved by PCLinuxOS, although there is still room for improvement. Good hardware detection, obvious offline access to a range of detailed documentation, effective sound detection and management, better (and more attractive) boot management with easy reinstallation of the bootloader from liveCD (all GUI based), more reliable installation...

If it wasn't for the extra advertising Ubuntu gets from its release scheduling PCLinuxOS would still be the world's most popular distro, and its really not hard to see why.

Ubuntu has a lot to offer, but it also has a lot to learn (from other distros).
