That's asking for a troll but I'll jump in anyway. Being a long time
Ubuntu supporter (since release 4.x at the time), it is clear that the
release cycle should have followed the Debian one for once (it will be
released when it is ready). There are quite a few annoying bugs in
this release which make it quite shaky compared to say, a rhel/centos
release (and remember that I am pro-Debian). Sure, most of those bugs
are going to get fixed via patching but for a LTS, some more stability
should be encouraged. That is not to say that Hardy ain't good, just
that polishing is clearly missing and makes it at the moment a "just
I use KDE rather than Gnome and network upgrade via apt every time.
The rest of the systems we have in house are either network upgrades
or clean installs. YMMV.
