Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Canonical Ltd., the company behind Ubuntu Linux, estimates that the product has over 12 million users worldwide. And why not? Ubuntu is free and it runs more than ten thousand applications. It has a vibrant user community, websites covering everything you might ever need to know, good tutorials, a paid support option, and more. Yet I often hear friends and co-workers casually criticize Ubuntu. Perhaps this the price of success. Or is it? In this article I'll analyze common criticisms and try to sort fact from fiction.

It is bloat in my opinion because it installs whatever Canonical want but users. There are too many that I wouldn't use at all... So it could be good for entry users or *lazy* users (but for me). So it is bloat not because of memory usage or anything. By the way every tool has its own use.
