Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu There is a general dissent growing at the popularity that Ubuntu enjoys among the Linux users. Considering that Ubuntu has maintained the number one slot at distrowatch.com for a whole year now, the feeling is a bit expected. This article tries to explore what is it that makes Ubuntu so popular among its users and how other linux distributions can take a leaf from ubuntu to effectively leverage their position in the popularity chart.

"a) good supportive community"
You can say that again!
I don't know how many of you have ever filed a bug report but, well I did and it's just incredible how much people actually care about it although it seems to be a minor problem and might be related to my strange hardware...

First I got no response but after two or three weeks it seems the report had propagated upwards on the list and a lot of people asked helpful and precise questions plus they didn't tell me how stupid I was when I did something wrong. Instead it sounded more like "Thanks a lot for your effort. What I meant was you should type this rather than that..."

That being said I use both, Ubuntu and Suse for they're good at different things.
