Sorry to say this, but it doesn't look like many people care about Ubuntu.

Not a whole lot of people that are used to the Linux platform use Ubuntu, but there are some that still do. It's a great distribution for people who are curious about what makes Linux so great due to the fact that you can burn a LiveCD and run the OS from your CD-ROM drive without having to install the system, thus giving people the option to throw the disc away or give it to someone else if they don't like it. You can even install the system from the LiveCD if you wanted to, which gives people an alternative to the text-based installation of other distributions like Slackware or Debian. I personally started out with Ubuntu earlier this year and quite enjoyed it, but then I tried Debian after getting some experience on Ubuntu and I liked it even more.

All in all, the *Ubuntu distributions are pretty solid as far as a good Linux distribution while still maintaining a very user-friendly experience by including some features that Windows and Mac OS users may find familiar. 7.10 is no exception; I ran the beta on a LiveCD for a few days and I really liked the improvements over 7.04.

Now that you're being more specific, you still have to take into account the fact that Windows systems dominate *nix and Mac systems when it comes to desktop computing. As such, news of other operating systems generally isn't of interest.
