Likes
  • Sleek redesigned UI
  • Industry desired marketplace (read: APPs )
  • Functions out of the box with my hardware(Dell Lattitude E5520)

Dislikes
  • Doesn't feel as stable as Debian
  • Lingering feelings of neglect for it being so easy
  • Questions of Enterprise scalability

I want to love it more but I need to use and abuse it for a while.

A couple of rants ....

1) I am sure I said I lived in London during the install and shure that means by default I should get a UK keyboard layout? Not going to rant on to our American friends, us Europeans should contribute more and then make it SOOOOO hard to get a US keyboard ... or default dictionaries to German all the time even after seting to US etc ... that would be fun! Or how about a distro that has all the worlds settings and no US ones at all? Take my hat off to the 'buntu...
