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.

"This is a long term release. So your good for the next three years.


Until you want to upgrade software that requires a newer release or a trip to the command line.

Linux is not ready for the typical user until it can handle upgrades properly. That means being able to update a browser in a two year old release without having to open a command prompt. Users should not be told to stick with their current browser version if they want stability. Browsers need to be updated for security reasons and users should not have to choose between security and stability.
"

Who feeds you all this utter FUD? Let me guess ... Windows fansites?

What is this guff about a command-line?
You can update your system with unsupported packages from this untrusted PPA by adding ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa to your system's Software Sources.

(Hint - copy and paste the bolded text above directly into the "Add source" GUI dialog).
