No bias here.

: 1. Users Love It

Onlooker do not. Earlier this year I watched a fellow passenger boot up 
his laptop running Ubuntu. I came to two possible conclusions watching 
the boot sequence from a few feet away. First, the guy was running a 
laptop a bit older than my TRS-80 in the closet. Second, Ubuntu is the 
slowest booting OS I have ever seen and gives Linux a bad name. It took 
just shy of three minutes from power button to desktop splash/login 
screen. My Windows XP box on a low end Dell boots up in around 30 
seconds.

: 4. A Superlative Security Record
:
: Security is a top priority for Ubuntu, which has been rated No. 1 for 
: security update quality and responsiveness in recent studies. Security 
: updates are freely available to all users of Ubuntu, with no 
: subscription required. Ubuntu is also conservative with updates; every 
: change made to the operating system or to the base applications is 
: peer reviewed for security. And of course, being an open source 
: platform, Ubuntu inherits the positive security characteristics of 
: Linux in general.

Uh, load this page and explain to me again how this is "superlative"?
