SimplyMEPIS: The best desktop Linux you haven't tried

We have been using Ubuntu Linux at our company for almost 2 years now and we are impressed with the stability of the Ubuntu distribution. I am puzzled as to why some posters here are implying that Ubuntu is not stable. We have servers and development systems which are running for months on end without reboot. Ubuntu offers ease of installation, good GUI selection {Gnome/KDE}, supports all needed applications {compilers, debuggers, IDE's}, and is easy to maintain.

I think this squabling about distributions is just silly. We started with RedHat 8, went to Fedora Core through FC4, and moved to Ubuntu... In the end I prefer Ubuntu to most other distros.
