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.

Not to mention going through the entire hassle of moving everything back to NTFS partitions, and all those ext4 you cared with love for the last few years. All to go back to Windows, with that bitter feeling of indifference from the creators of Linux DEs. We users were the ones who converted more people than any developer out there. If there is someone who is responsible for Ubuntu's popularity and Linux overall, it's us, the public.

My feelings go even bitter when I see numbers like Linux is 1% of overall desktop market. I mean... at some point I ask myself, is this hassle all worth it?
