when I install ubuntu, I must install a lot of things to satisfy the my prior human needs! such as listening to music! or watching a movie.
I have mp3 CDs, movie DVDs and... but in a fresh install of ubuntu nothing can be played except OGGs or some other formats that nobody even don't know about them.
in comparison, I think Parsix is a little faster than Ubuntu. I worked with both of them.
the point of this post was not as you said. I'm just saying that give a try of this distro. let's give some spaces to other debian based distros to compete with Ubuntu.
Ubuntu has nothing, except some sponsors to sepnd money for its team!
thanks about the revie link.
