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.

Judging a DE exclusively on an experience in Gentoo doesn't seem fair to me. You're tweaking and tuning in an individual way, and if something isn't working, Gentoo lets you have all kinds of configurations that might not work quite so well. All that configurability comes at a price: you're likely to be running a unique and somewhat broken configuration if you're building such large software repositories and changing things midway.
