Status in Ubuntu Manual: Fix Committed

Bug description:
Version: 788
Chapter and page number: Prologue, page 9 (page 11 of the PDF)
Type: diction/grammar

In the third sentence of the first bullet point under 'Is Ubuntu right for you?', the word 'thankfully' is employed wrongly. ('Thankfully' should be used when referring to a person who is thankful, not to a fortunate circumstance.) A more appropriate word would be 'fortunately'.
