Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu x64bit.net has a review of the (K)Ubuntu Dapper Drake beta. "Please note Ubuntu/Kubuntu 'Dapper Drake' is not yet a final product and the available previews do not reflect the quality of the final product. This quick review is not meant to divide Ubuntu and Kubuntu into separate distros. They are almost identical to each other, except the default desktop for Ubuntu is Gnome, whereas KDE is Kubuntu's default desktop." Lots of screenshots, boys and girls.

Slack vs. Ubuntu

I'm the die-hard Slackware user that was always bitching on Ubuntu, which has cost me several negative moderation points ;)

Since things are a little bit quiet around Slackware 11 and the new Dropline Gnome, I thought what the hell let's give it a shot.

And what can I say, I'm impressed in every way.
I have AIGLX running with all the new compiz plugins, it looks great, it feels great, it feels great to work in it which feeling I never had with Warty or Hoary.

I can't wait for all the new features that will come in and I can't wait for the final release to show up ;)

Maybe this is my switch from Slack to Ubuntu, I don't know, let's wait what te slack -and dropline gnomecamp has to offer in a few more months ;)

Both are great distro's so I have a hard time choosing which one to pick, but for now I'll stay with Dapper!

Great work!
