you can also replace few letters with digits or special chars ('a' with
'@', 'i' with '1', e with '3', ... etc). so "ubuntu hardy" could become
Ub4n1uH at r6y.

but when you can use long passwords, just use a full phrase, with
punctuation et al. you can replace few chars with digits or special
chars to make it "stronger". The advantage is that we can type a phrase
faster than a random (unpronouncable) sequence of characters.
