Forgive me for asking an obvious question, but have you considered switching to a 64-bit version of Ubuntu?
I've been a happy convert since I switched from Fedora Core 5 to Dapper Drake, although I have not had opportunity to try the 64 bit versions.
As you point out in your article, package management is important, and the best thing in my experience with Ubuntu is the package management!
Synaptic and apt-get really are much, much better than Yum and rpm, in my experience. Many other things "just work" better and I spend much less time admin'ing and more time getting real work done.
