I finished reviving an ancient Dell laptop this weekend. I had been running XP and an older version of Xubuntu - unhappily. (I hadn't used the machine for a long, long time.) So I looked at Distrowatch and serendipitously decided to take a chance on your shiny new v2 and it's promise of out-of-the-box ease and uncharacteristic (for Linux) compatibility. It's everything I'd hoped Ubuntu would be way back when, and made me glad I formatted Windows into oblivion. So thanks for the good work and being there at just the right time.
