Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Canonical's Mark Shuttleworth has announced the plans for Ubuntu 9.10, named Karmic Koala. Jaunty Jackalope isn't out of its cage yet (April 2009), but the Ubuntu team is already planning for 9.10, which will see the light of day in October 2009. The desktop side will focus on beautification and an improved boot-up experience; the server side will target cloud computing.

RE[2]: No more brown!

Clearly it's been a while, since Ubuntu is orange now.

And most people I know think it's even worse than the old one. Don't get me wrong I've got nothing against a cheery, warm, colorful theme, but the default should try to be a tad more neutral. Yes, XP was colorful and garish to boot, but XP came preinstalled on about 95% of the world's new PCs which tends to help quite a bit. And what's even more important, MS has learned. Win 7 looks a lot better and I don't even have to mention OSX.

Their official KDE version is black with blue trim, and their XFCE version is gray with blue trim, if that really suits you better.

They're not Ubuntu. Kubuntu is a disaster anyway. I tried it not too long ago and out of the distros I checked out (Debian/Sidux with the experimental pkgs - my final choice -, Fedora, SuSE) it was the worst.

ymmv though.

(btw. if Ubuntu cared one bit about Kubuntu they would've skipped the KKK release)
