Ubuntu packages the only Linux option

I have just watched a fascinating video entitled “Why Desktop Linux Sucks” by Bryan Lunduke (http://anotherubuntu.blogspot.com/2009/05/why-desktop-linux-sucks.html).  Desktop Linux works really well for me but Bryan makes a lot of important points.   I certainly agree that packaging is a big problem.  The approach I have taken for Linux installation with the SOFA Statistics project is to only release a deb package aimed at Ubuntu (http://www.sofastatistics.com/downloads.php).  I am already spending a lot of time packaging as it is and would like to spend more time developing new features.
