My frustration with Debian has always been that it was either out of date or broken. Ubuntu seems like a good alternative that still feeds back to what is a good project. I installed Sarge a while back and have been ok with it, but when I saw the Ubuntu notice on LWN, I decided to install it and give it a spin. I have Ubuntu setup to share my /home directory with Sarge. So far I'm quite pleased with it. The install was easy and the best thing is that it was only one disk. Multiple CD installs just don't make sense in the age of modern packaging tools that make upgrading and adding packages so easy if you have a decent connection.
Some of the packages I use weren't available, but it isn't that difficult to install from source, so I think I'll be working with Ubuntu for a while.
