I have performed *buntu and Fedora installations for over 60 users,
and about 20 still use it daily. That means that for about two-thirds
of users Ubuntu does not perform some critical function, be it no
support for a webcam or printer, or the inability to run a particular
program, or no support for certain disabilities.

Where, exactly do I fall? Below a rock?
