Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu We're a little late, but Real Life got in the way, so here we finally are. Canonical, the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, announced today that Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop Edition has been released. This version focusses on improvements in cloud computing on the server using Eucalyptus, further improvements in boot speed, as well as development on Netbook Remix. The related KDE, Xfce, and other variants have been released as well. Update by ELQ: Just a quick note to say that one of my Creative Commons videos was selected to be part of Ubuntu's Free Culture Showcase package that comes by default with the new Ubuntu version!

Quite simply because it will fall on deaf ears.

Just to clarify... because in retrospect, I don't think I was very clear... it is not the criticism of Ubuntu that I disapprove of. It is the presumptuous title: "This will not be a popular comment", which effectively prejudges Ubuntu users, and OSNews readers, in general. If the comment turns out to be unpopular, then fine. But if you believe your viewpoint to have value, let the readers decide how they feel about it, rather than goading them with condescending assertions as to how your criticism will be received by them.

Declarations like "this will not be a popular comment" are not constructive.
