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.

...The constant beta quality of Linux distributions (I use Ubuntu) keeps it from a major distribution to the public....

You have obviously never used Debian. There ARE stable and generally bug free distros out there, Ubuntu just isn't one of them. Please don't generalize and assume that Ubuntu is the benchmark 'linux'. I shudder at the thought.

As gets repeated over and over again; Ubuntu ≠ Linux.
