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 have linux boxen that have only been rebooted after a power outage or hardware failure, and uptime of a year are nothing surprising.

I think the point could be made that at some point, stable enough is stable enough.

Unfortunately, Windows ain't there yet.

Ubuntu is only slightly better.
