There are things that really annoy me with Ubuntu. I've got the netbook
remix, solely because it is built for that, and it does things like *not*
ever removing older kernels, so my boot is currently listing about 6 or 8;
I've manually had to remove them in the past, and will have to again.

I also really dislike their equivalent of grub.conf - it's a long, long
script, with stuff buried in it, and it calls a bunch of other files,
rather than the simple, clean one in RH/CentOS.
