Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Officially, Dell hasn't said a word yet about which Linux it will be preloading on its desktops and laptops. Several sources within Dell, however, have told that Dell's desktop Linux pick is going to be Ubuntu. While unable to confirm this through official Dell channels, we have heard the same story now from several internal Dell sources. They tell us that the computer giant will be preinstalling the newly released Ubuntu 7.04. These systems will be released in late May 2007."

They need commonality. If every distro is doing something different (even it that something is minor) it makes it harder for developers to support it.

However, I think the Linux community is doing a good job. I don't think the lack of commonality is the reason Linux isn't just taking off like wildfire. Probably more of just an excuse for developers.

(Yes I know that's a bit of a contradiction.)
