Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ah, it's that time of the year again. We already had this up on the sidebar, but I figured we'd turn it into a proper front page item - mostly because I want to discuss the move by the Ubuntu team to no longer install GNOME 2 as the 'classic' desktop option - which pretty much ends any and all involvement for me with Ubuntu (KDE 4 here I come). There's more to this than just that, of course, so those of you who do like Unity still have enough reason to upgrade.

It's just the lack of customizability. Almost everything is hard coded. That's not nice. That's hardly the Linux spirit.

I understand it might evolve eventually. Then will be a good time to get it. In the meantime, however, Ubuntu should have provided support for the Gnome 2 series for at least two more releases. Canonical is alienating its user base. That's hard to understand IMO.
