I've had mixed experiences with Ubuntu, to be honest.
With quality distributions such as Pardus and Mint (which I'm posting
from), I do feel it is being left behind, catching up, but rushed).

I doubt there will be a great swing away from Linux to 7 unless users are
disillusioned with their present systems, whatever sort or flavour that
may be. The latest and greatest only appeals to quite a small number of
people in reality.
It may be of interest to know that in a direct comparison carried out here
last week, we were very surprised indeed to find that a freshly installed
Windows ME actually ran faster (and felt smoother in operation for some
reason) than Win 7 on similar hardware. Mind boggling, and leaves one with
the feeling that as far as innovation and progression are concerned,
people are just being somewhat conned by hype.
