While I think that it is nice when distributions contribute to various projects and developers, I actually WISH that more distributions had Ubuntu's philosophy of USABILITY. I know for example redhat has tons of developers working on making software better in general but when I install their system, I find I have to make a ton of tweaks and some things just don't ever play right. It looks to me that Ubuntu developers actually spend the most time making their FINAL PRODUCT better. For years I had been waiting for redhat/mandrake/suse to install a minimum list of applications that covered the spectrum of what needed doing on one CD where everything "just worked" (including the proprietary stuff). Then Ubuntu arrives late on the scene and does it!!! As far as I am concerned the only thing I want Ubuntu to do is make a Clean/Friendly/Stable distribution. I feel that Ubuntu is the only distribution that understands the quote "10% of the time is to get 90% done and the other 90% of the time is to get the last 10% done".
