It was the very first ubuntu that i tried, 7.04. I hope i'm not confusing 
it with mandriva, i was too new at that time. :-)

As I said earlier, its a matter of personal preference, there's no 
explanation to it, buddy. Isn't it a linux goal to reach out to users and 
tell them about linux so they can consider switching to linux, we'd have to 
work towards meeting user preferences if we really want them to like linux. 
You can't convince a bike rider to take a bus and vice versa, especially 
when he knows both can be used to reach the destination. :-)
