Ubuntu is a pretty solid and good distro. I'd use it for general use any day. However, there's one issue: Until Ubuntu fixes the issues it has with VNC and not sending data correctly, I'll stick with Fedora if I have to remote into it.

I'm going to wait until the final release before upgrading. I have 4 computers running it now, and one of them I will wait, as it is a Mythbuntu server that I don't want to upset, as it would be quite hard to find a place to back up all 6TB of stuff on it.

Works fine on my end. The only issues I've had were with trying to connect with it with Vista, so I had to use another flavour of VNC on the connecting end.

I use Ubuntu as a dekstop operating system all the time now. I love it. It does pretty much everything I need it to do. And of course, there's the added security element too. I better not go into too much detail, as nobody likes fanboys! At the moment, I am using Fedora's "Nodoka" theme which is quite nice. Still, I wish GNOME would completely overhaul the default theme and make it look more modern.
I did update to the beta version of 9.10 early on. What a mistake, it messed many things up. I ended up having to reinstall 9.04. Entirely my fault though!
Quoting Goldenshield (Reply 6): I've played with the VNC settings in both /etc and /~, with no result for a quick screen---if at all. In Fedora, It just had to change the settings in /~.
Have you tried adding "DisallowTCP=false" to "/etc/gdm/gdm.conf-custom"?
