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.

I don't understand people thinking this was a move.

LibreOffice is the Ubuntu/SuSE branch of OpenOffice, they just finally got a different name and Google backing.

I recant the different name bit... a good name. Go-OO wasn't a good name.
