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.

Not quite true. You can start with a minimal install of Ubuntu if you want to.

For most parts, my Ubuntu dev VM is like my Debian server. Except that Ubuntu gets updated more frequently, which means that I don't have to mess around with getting some packages from stable, others from testing. Heck, my Ubuntu VM is as minimal as my Arch VM.
