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.

Totally off topic but I just did the unthinkable with ubuntu on my wifes computer. She needed a new printer, so I waltz into bestbuy got a brother multifunction laser printer on sale without stopping to consider the operating system.

Plugged it in, the cd had printer drivers, the website had scanner drivers and 10min later - everything works as expected.

When did linux start getting along with printers sos well?
