Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The recently released 10.04 version of Ubuntu is the third Long Term Support (LTS) version Canonical has released. I installed this new version on four of my laptops (2 netbooks, 1 normal laptop, 1 portable desktop replacement), and here's my impression of it.

Unfortunately, yes it does. I'm sure they do that for simplicity's sake, and the fact that a lot of Ubuntu users are switchers who don't know enough or don't care to mess with multiple partitions.

I've always preferred a "root, /boot, /home" setup as a good balance between simplicity and ease of upgrade/restore. I've been doing that since the late '90s when I first started tinkering with Slackware and RedHat.

That said, when I'm just testing out a distro I let it do its default scheme, both to save time and to get a feel for how the developers prefer things.
