Wow. I haven't done much with Ubuntu. I'm always tempted to try it in a 
chroot, but the sound never works. Those ssh problems are serious show 
stoppers. I installed Ubuntu Karmic Koala on vbox. Editing the 
sshd_config file and restarting /etc/init.d/ssh worked fine to disable 
password logins. (Though using vbox I was only able to ssh in via ipv6 
from the same box -- using a different box I was able to ssh in via ipv4.)

I installed Debian for my mother and nieces and nephews. They don't even 
notice the difference.
