Hello Vishal,

No specific reason for evaluating Ubuntu. In fact the tools that are developed in our organization are supposed to work on Red Hat/Fedora OSs only. But have a heard a lot about Ubuntu being very user-friendly. We have been using FC3 as our desktop OS till now. But since it's quite an old OS now we will be upgrading it to some newer OS.Some of the users in our team just wanted to test how good Ubuntu is as against Fedora as a Desktop OS!

Thanks everybody,
