Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The 5th preview release of Ubuntu Dapper Drake is out on the mirrors. As usual, there are both install and live CD's for PowerPC, x86, and x86-64. "We are now in the final stages of Dapper Drake development. Everything is stabilizing, and Ubuntu 6.04 will certainly be a top-notch professional OS. Now that all of the lower level improvements have been made, it is time to close the hood and rub on a coat of wax. With Flight 5 comes a new and improved Human look-and-feel, a few new GUI power tools, and much more." Update: Screenshot tour.

Truthfully not much.

ubuntu are not what you would exactly call innovative or revolutionary. Their contriubtions in terms of volume and complexity are relatively small, compared to say Novell ( which has backed ,funded and support server OSS projects).

What makes Ubuntu better ? So what makes Ubuntu great?
It's because they focus on the "simple" things. And they try to keep things simple.

Take their new additions to Dapper. I mean really the gdebi (it's reaaaaalllly simplified )makes me sick to look at ....but i know that i will be using it when i do get dapper. Not because it's complicated wizadry with amazing bells and whistles but because it is simple.

....i hope with the one simple example i've given you've gotten a feel for what makes Ubuntu great.

oh by the way. anything Ubuntu can do any other linux desktop distro can.....
