Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu According to Google Trends, but also according to Distrowatch, our own statistics here at OSNews and overall sense of the industry during 2006, Ubuntu has a big leap in mind share ahead of its competition (please note that we don't dare to say "market share", although we are pretty confident that it's the most used Linux desktop out there today). The second Fedora has a very small edge ahead of SuSe (while in US is a clear second), while Debian is following fourth. Mandrake+Mandriva (add both names on Google Trends and then sum the results) is clearly way below the previous four distros, but a clear 5th nonetheless. Last year Ubuntu was only a bit ahead of the other distros worldwide, but 2006 seems to have skyrocketed the distribution in the people's minds and computers.

Funny thing is when the machine starts both the mouse and keyboard work like a standard USB mouse/keyboard until the CD goes into its detect/start up phase. So DOS/Bios recognize my keyboard as a USB keyboard and work, but Ubuntu refuses to look at it.

You should file a bug report, that's the best way to help solve the problem for future releases (if you're not a programmer).
