Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Finally. Finally the leader of a major distribution who has the guts to stand up and say what a lot of people have known for a long time, but didn't dare to say because it usually leads to a storm of criticism. Mark Shuttleworth has announced that Ubuntu will be moving away from, opting to go with Wayland instead.

"Let see of things will work out for Ubuntu. And don't forget, Linux is only a kernel, so there are a lot of distros choices out there.

There's more behind the curtain. I don't think Linux is just a kernel. The linux kernel can survive without a distro, whereas a distro can't survive without the linux kernel. So I don't think it's right for distros to remove the Linux word from their brand.

Where did it all begin?

Linux was already established as an enterprise server platform in 2004. But free software was still not a part of everyday life for most computer users. That's why Mark Shuttleworth gathered a small team of developers from one of the most established Linux projects – Debian - and set out to create an easy-to-use Linux desktop, Ubuntu.

The vision for Ubuntu is part social and part economic: free software, available free of charge to everybody on the same terms, and funded through a portfolio of services provided by Canonical.

Isn't that enough? Do you also bitch at Android, etc? Sheesh.
