Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu When Dell announced a shift in its Linux strategy last week, accompanied by a new netbook, many wondered why Dell insisted on pre-loading Ubuntu 8.04, instead of newer versions of the popular Linux distribution such as 8.10 or 9.04. BetaNews contacted Dell about it, and Dell replied explaining their rationale behind opting for 8.04.

I can't agree more. I just downgraded from 9.04 to 8.04.2 simply because 9.04 is quite buggy. I reported many graphics and font problems in the RC release, but none of those were fixed before the final release.

I know of numerous people that did the same. 8.04.2 is rock solid! Not to mention that 8.04 is a LTS release, so it will be supported for a long time still. Good choice Dell!
