I think Ubuntu has finally put out an OS that's worthy of being used as a full-time OS for those with typical computing needs. I've been using Ubuntu for about 4 years and the out-of-box experience with Ubuntu 9.10 has been a pleasure. It still lacks Snow Leopard and Windows 7's polish and for those needing a lot of help learning the OS, the help facility in Ubuntu isn't as good as SL or W7.
On the other hand, for most general computing needs, Ubuntu provides all that most of us could ever need in an OS. It's amazing there is a world of hard-working and dedicated people out there that bring this product to market for us, mostly on their own free-time! So I'd just like to say ?thank you? for a job well done!
