Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just like Eugenia yesterday, I also upgraded my laptop's Ubuntu Feisty installation to Gutsy a few days ago. The upgrade process went completely awry, though, so I was forced to do a fresh install. Not a bad thing, as it gave me the opportunity to take a look at Ubuntu's soon-to-be-released Gutsy Gibbon with GNOME 2.20

I've been hearing the tired old "this is the year of desktop Linux" since revolutionary Mandrake Linux 9.0 was released way back in 2003! I've used Ubuntu Linux off an on for about a year and a half and the one thing that has always struck me about the Ubuntu community is that everyone there seems to live in a perpetual state of waiting for the next big release. Once it drops, then the nitpicking begins and then it's "wait for the next release..." ad nauseum! There's no denying that Ubuntu isa fantastic Linux OS for personal desktops (for servers, I prefer pure Debian, but that's another topic.) The Ubuntu community needs to perhaps slow down and analyze each release and work out needed improvements before dropping a release only to move immediately to the next one. That's why there are niggling little bugs that have persisted since Hoary!
