Merry Christmas, indeed.  The following excerpt is from a story in the 25
December issue of The Economist:
> That’s largely the doing of Gutsy Gibbon, the code-name for the Ubuntu
> 7.10 from Canonical. Along with distributions such as Linspire, Mint,
> Xandros, OpenSUSE and gOS, Ubuntu (and its siblings Kubuntu, Edubuntu and
> Xubuntu) has smoothed most of Linux’s geeky edges while polishing it for
> the desktop.
> No question, Gutsy Gibbon is the sleekest, best integrated and most
> user-friendly Linux distribution yet. It’s now simpler to set up and
> configure than Windows. A great deal of work has gone into making the
> graphics, and especially the fonts, as intuitive and attractive as the
> Mac’s.

Scroll down to the section titled "3. Surfing—and everything else
computer-related—will open".

Interesting opinion from a mainstream newspaper (the term The Economist
prefers for itself over "magazine"...)

Cheers & enjoy,
