Neither do I.  All distributions are good :-)

My comment is a reaction to three changes:

(1) StarOffice is included
(2) Gnome is more mature
(3) The Fancy Installer

All probably irrelevant to most of us - maybe with the
exception of the second point - but good for The Average
Desktop User.

The first point implies that I could install it for my
mother and let her do her letters on a Linux box (ok, I
can't install it, because she is still using an Atari ST -
no kidding - but it is an interesting thought anyway).

Disclamier: I know that Sun's license sucks etc, but that's
not the point here.
