Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This is typically one of those things that could start to lead a life of its own if it doesn't get handled properly from the get-go. As it turns out, Canonical is interested in tracking Ubuntu OEM installs, and it has decided to do so by installing a tracking package on OEM machines running 10.04.

I think it would be very interesting to see the results, certainly when the package would be installed as default on all systems, unless the user chooses to disable/remove it.

I know that would be a difficult point for a lot of OSNews readers, but I can't think of another way to get 'reliable' numbers. Maybe you would even get nice numbers to show hardware vendors to convince them to share good drivers with the community.
