    Linux elitists have been whining about everyone should be using Linux for years. Finally a distro comes that appeals to a bigger crowd, and they bash it. I do not see the logic.

    It's Linux, it can be as bloated and as slim as you want it to be.

    no ubuntu doesn't give you that option it installs tons of stuff you dont need much like fedora, distros like slackware and gentoo are slim as you only install what you want, ubuntu is the windows of the foss

    as long as it works out of the box and gives no issues what people want. That makes it easier to manage and deal with. Of course, linux will never be what microsoft is on the mainstream market though. Although, I still think that linux servers blow microsoft servers away ..

    It installs many things by default because it is not intended to be Slackware. It is not intended to be the distro for you. You are not Ubuntu's audience. As for the option to remove packages ... it's called apt. Install Ubuntu server and you will get the barebones of what you need.

    I could hand you several FreeBSD servers that blow linux clean away as well :D

    I'm sure X could point you to a few Solaris boxes that blow that away :)

    Linux isn't all it's cracked up to be, it just happens to be "trendy" to use linux.

    Just as it is trendy to use BSD or Solaris. It's a version of My Daddy Can Beat Up Your Daddy or ... my geek play thing is geekier than your geek play thing hence I > you. Where have the days gone when software was judged on it's merits? ... oh wait ... that stopped when everyone stopped using UNIX.

    FreeBSD and Solaris *are* unix - they are based on BSD Unix and System V unix respectivley. Do get your facts right :)

    Also I work with linux hosting servers everyday, I can state with certainty that the BSD/Solaris boxes would be chugging along happily long after the linux boxes crashed and burned under load.

    That would be a good thing, I fail to see what influence solaris has on that sentiment though?
