He came to this list for advice and has been given some great feedback. Comments like that just put new users off from coming to ubuntu-users for help in case they get flamed. 

comparing distributions, like Gnome vs KDE, like emacs or vi are not
questions that have definite answers except for the personal judgment
that one can only make for themselves.

Doing it on multiple lists makes it clear that the OP isn't actually
interested in the answer, because he has already been told that there is
no single answer.

Asking the Ubuntu list just two scant days after he disdained Ubuntu on
the Fedora list made it abundantly obvious that he is just a troll and
I'm sorry if that seems harsh and unfriendly. If you feel that it is
worth your time and energy then so be it but don't say that you weren't
