Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu developers are finalising preparations for the release of the next version - dubbed Feisty Fawn - of the popular Linux distribution in mid-April. Overnight, Ubuntu developer Tollef Fog Heen announced Ubuntu's main software repository had been frozen - with no changes allowed to the code - as developers got ready to issue a fifth major test version ('Herd 5') of the next version of Ubuntu.

Why is this news? why "a step closer to launching a product" is news?

If it is news after all,

why we did not get 5*365 articles in OS News about "Longhorn/Vista is a step closer to release"?

why are we not getting 1 daily article on every single Linux distribution under the sun?

I'm getting tired of "just because it says 'ubuntu' it's news". It's downright annoying.
