Mikkel L. Ellertson thinks the same. I suppose you're not both wrong, but
there are some considerations:

1) some peole need a story to get interest into a subject.

2) teckies often write short messages and then come back with precisions.
I prefer to give all the information in one shot.

3) market share is important to me and I don't believe we can say things
such as: "Ubuntu will take care of market share". What if, for example,
Shuttleworth decided to scrap the project tomorrow?

Besides, Ubuntu is on 6 months releases just as Fedora, so not having to
upgrade is not a feature offered by Ubuntu anymore than Fedora. Of course,
there's a long term release, but I don't believe it's the one most newbies
are using.

Finally, market share has a lot to do with technical considerations.


But I'll try to keep your remark in mind.
