Submission + - Walt Mossberg Reviews Ubuntu (

sciurus0 writes: "Mainstream technology journalist Walt Mossberg recently reviewed an Inspiron 1420N with Ubuntu installed by Dell. Citing problems such as an oversensitive touchpad and poor multimedia support, he suggests that "from the point of view of an average user, someone who wouldn't want to enter text commands, hunt the Web for drivers and enabling software, or learn a whole new user interface" Ubuntu isn't a good choice compared to Windows or OS X."
