I suspect that Ubuntu may be pushing its goodwill bonus a bit with its current design by committee fad. I have been using Ubuntu since 5.10, but if Fedora can really make good on their plans to resist destablising changes I may end up switching in the near future. I think that the thing that keeps Ubuntu safe for now is that it is still the distribution that one can recommend to an innocent person with the best conscience (and I wonder how many of its users installed it themselves, and how many had it foisted upon them by a well-meaning acquaintance). If Fedora starts to fill that space then Ubuntu may find itself treading on thin ice when it upsets people (i.e. those actually doing the installing) like this.
