I very much disagree that it's 'on top'.  Popular, perhaps, on top?  I 
know /many/ more people running Fedora than I do ubuntu of any flavor. 
It /is/ a good desktop version.  But I certainly wouldn't call it the 
best distro out there.

But then, I've been in the linux world since slackware 3, so what do I know.
