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.

Stability is essential for the adoption of any OS and it's the most economical in driving costs down for support. I'm a fan of 8.04LTS for that very fact. Most "Linux Enthusiasts" already know how to install any Linux Distro that they want so this is definitely not an issue.
