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.

Ubuntu is based on Debian testing (or maybe unstable?), not stable branch. Always has been as far as I know.

PC-BSD is awesome, if only it played better with GNOME.
