CentOS all my life. Reliable, fast, secure.
Hi, have you tried ubuntu 9.04 or 9.10 or 10.04.All these versions of ubuntu are superfast.
Also upgrading is easy in ubuntu too.For upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10 you only need to have alternative install cd of 10.10 or you can upgrade using update manager.
$: pacman -Syu
I have learnt one thing from my experience that bugs are not due to the distribution but they are due to the embedded softwares used.
Ubuntu is fine for windows users and people who don't know much about Linux and don't have the time to sit down and configure a computer. But its very far from the best all purpose Linux distribution. There's a reason most college programing labs and companies use red hat or centos.
Ubuntu does have some innovative ideas, but unless they get their bugs under control I can't use it as anything other than a testing system. http://www.linux-mag.com/id/7600
If ubuntu works for you thats great. But I prefer other Linux distributions.
You love arch linux, I am comfortable with ubuntu.That's all based on our tastes and experiences.But best thing about it is that we love linux and more specifically free and open source.:smile:We all people have different tastes and different choices based on our nature.When it come to Linux you have so many flavors to taste.Which we call distributions of Linux.Each distribution have same thing called Linux's kernel, but what makes them is different is, their features.
Yeah, I agree ubuntu is easy to use and that's why it is very popular as desktop OS and that is the reason ubuntu has long list of bugs and Ubuntu community is always there to support users.
