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 don't know about anyone else, but the main attraction of getting a new Ubuntu machine is the low overheads and the attractions of tinkering. New tinkerers also have a habit of messing up their Linux installs; I've certainly never kept a laptop or netbook OS running for more than a couple of months. This doesn't so much measure brand loyalty or customer satisfaction; it just measures how many people are incurious. But Linux users, by and large, are always off down the rabbit hole.
