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.

Try Mint

I can only add to the exhortations to try Linux Mint. It outdoes Ubuntu of old on several fronts (for me at least) and Mint 11 at least still uses Gnome 2. Funnily enough, I never really got along with Gnome until I tried Mint. Never really looked back since. You can also try a Debian-based version of Mint, by the way.
