Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Many people are looking to Ubuntu to be something that it is not: A mass market ready operating system designed to work with the same level of compatibility as Microsoft Windows. Where people get confused is in believing that if Ubuntu, king of the Linux distros, is not able to take the marketplace by storm, then something must be broken with desktop Linux. In this article, I'll explain what it will take to dethrone the mighty Ubuntu and gain a market share so large that it will eclipse anything seen by Ubuntu to date." More here.

Polishing better than adding features

I realize a lot of features added to GNU/Linux distros lately are great, but I think adding polish to the whole distro, removing bugs and annoyances is more important. Maybe SOME linux distro should go that way. Linux is about choice, isn't it? So I would choose the most polished DESKTOP distro, not the most cutting-edge. I would even pay for it.

Maybe SUSE or other commercial distros are more polished than Ubuntu/Fedora? Debian and Slackware are off course more stable, but maybe not more polished.
