Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu My search for "the perfect Linux operating system" this time brings me to the latest incarnation of Ubuntu, version 5.04, also known as the "Hoary Hedgehog Release". Previously I was using Fedora Core 4, however due to some minor bugs it had, I wanted to try something different.

Hate that word

"Snappy"

Who made that word? "Snappier" Why? Why use that word? I hate when people use that word to describe the speed of their computer/OS. It sounds like a fanboy word.

For that matter, I hate these constant fights about the speed of XYZ OS/distro. Isn't it obvious by now that the difference is not black and white, but a bit of grey? It seems to me that there is enough evidence to suggest that different configurations of hardware coupled with the subjective feeling of 'snappiness' different people have or need make the whole arguement moot? Can't we argue about something more worthwhile, like whether my dad can beat up your dad?
