7.10 was not LTS and took forever to boot on my HP lappy and needed config to handle the start-up screen. 8.04 however was a dog for me and by that time I had learned enough debian to make the switch. Ubuntu is the whole set take it or leave it, debian is like lego, build it how you want and any bits you don't like can be removed and replaced with bits you do. I still run ubuntu from time to time (twas my first real working-with-wireless-linux) but Debian is just better once you become an advanced n00b.

Debian is suspiciously absent from that list...I have windows and Debian and currently there is nothing I can do in windows that I cannot do in Debian but, of course, YMMV as I don't really do anything 'mission critical' with my own computers.

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all your time.
