Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "One of the benefits of the direction that's been taken with the next release of Ubuntu is that there is no longer a need for a separate netbook edition. The introduction of the new shell for Ubuntu means that we have a user interface that works equally well whatever the form factor of the PC. And the underlying technology works on a range of architectures including those common in netbook, notebooks, desktops or whatever you choose to run it on. Hence the need for a separate version for netbooks is removed"

...Example: You call yourselves "Linux for humans" and talk up how easy it is for noobs while making it so bleeding edge the CDs have stigmata WTH? Since when is trying to fix the constantly breaking bleeding edge noob friendly?


I have worked with two of Ubuntu's LTS releases, Hardy and Lucid, and both have been stable from the beginning. They also benefit from long-term support. The other releases are a different story. If you upgrade the system within a month of release you likely will have problems. That has been true especially for Kubuntu users, because KDE has had enormous difficulties, and the Ubuntu/Debian team hasn't made it a high priority to fix them they way Fedora and Suse have.
