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.

As much as I may personally like having the latest and greatest software available for Linux; latest and greatest is just wrong for most corporate settings. Red Hat does it right, with RHEL and Fedora clearly separated. I view Ubuntu's use of the LTS designation as a way to land more-or-less half-way between RHEL and Fedora. I'm not convinced that it's working.
