I'm a Linux newbie somewhat frustrated by mixed experience with a couple of distros that are reviewed as "Just works" (not including Ubuntu yet).
I read: "for typical desktop use, Ubuntu is ready "out of the box."." If I look at http://ubuntuguide.org/ about Ubuntu 4.10 , it shows a lot of ordinary stuff to be installed by the user (Java, codecs etc). Is 5.04 really any different ?
I read "Ubuntu had no problem detecting all of the laptop's hardware. No manual configuration or tweaking was necessary for X.org or anything else.". Do you mean that suspend to RAM and/or disk do work on your laptop without any tweaking ?
