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.

9.04 is unusable buggy for a lot of people. MEPIS, or it's parent, Debian Stable are far more stable/reliable than even LTS.
