Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The Ubuntu team is proud to announce version 7.04 of the Ubuntu family of distributions (more info here and here). Ubuntu 7.04 is also the basis for new 7.04 releases of Kubuntu (screenshots) and Edubuntu. Ubuntu 7.04 will be supported for 18 months on both desktops and servers. Here is a review of Feisty Fawn, and it also seems that Michael Dell has it installed too. Get it while it's hot.

If you need anything that's new *coughPHP5cough* then Ubuntu is generally better.

I would say that the quality is slightly better on Debian, and it doesn't seem to require quite so many upgrades as Ubuntu.

With both Debian and Ubuntu LTS, I've ended up backporting packages. The difference is that I have to backport more packages for Debian due to it's insanely long release cycles.

Given that I suspect that Ubuntu Edgy/Fiesty packages get more testing than Debian unstable packages, I'm happier about backporting those.

I really wish someone would release new kernel packages for LTS though.
