I can think back....and man I tell you I picked my Linux distro like I 
picked my ice cream.  I tasted them.

It makes no common sense to go to Baskin Robbins and ask the people in 
the line if Baskin Robbins is better than Cold Stone Creamery.  Same the 
other way.  They are in line at Baskin Robbins cause they like Baksin 
Robins.  At the end of the day all you got are a bunch of biased answers 
and the only thing that matters is what your tongue tells you.  You got 
ice cream in Bangalore, don't you?

Ya did tell ric that youve settled on Ubuntu.  Maybe you'll like the taste.
