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'm using my own xmodmap, and I'm just plain and simple unable to type *anything* on gedit & likes.

Then in must be a problem with your own xmodmap. I also use a custom written one to give me Programmer Dvorak key layout. It's been working perfectly for me since 7.04 and now on 8.04.2. I'm glad to see my feature request to add 'programmer dvorak' as standard in Ubuntu was finally accepted and is available in 8.10 and 9.04. Awesome! :-)
