Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu After announcing the move to Unity, and the eventual move to Wayland further down the line (someday one day perhaps eventually maybe once when unicorns roam the earth), Ubuntu is announcing yet another major change, this time in its release policy. While they're not moving to a rolling release as some websites are claiming, they will update components and applications more often.

If you want chrome on ubuntu for example you can get the deb from google, double click on it and it will install and automatically hook up with apt so that you get automatic updates (unlike in windows where a lot of apps have their own update application, I have like 5 running now: "adobe updater", "apple software update" etc). Is that really much more difficult than running a installer in windows?

Mozilla prefers to have the distros package their own builds, but they could have it working in a similar way if they wanted to, you can't blame it on linux that they don't.
