The way I see it from the two first responses, Ubuntu has too much
red-tape for my small "hacktivity-and-no-bullshit"-oriented mind to
handle. Seems like I am ping-ponged from place to place on the
Email/bug-tracker like I was on IRC. Feel free to dismiss me as
another troll, but just note that I have a lot to show for - .

I'm unsubscribing, and wish Ubuntu the best of luck. However, I'm not
planning on getting near it anytime soon.

Electrical Engineering studies. In the Technion. Been there. Done
that. Forgot a lot. Remember too much.
