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.

GNOME Shell Usable

Although GNOME Shell looks to be the only thing with future (I mean, significantly adopted), perhaps when Wayland works with it, then I will be able to activate "Activities" through a right-button mouse click, without having to keep the mouse coming-and-going thing.

But I was thinking here. One of the darnest things Linux got in this past 20 years was not innovation. But a lot of idiotic fanboys. There were quite a few in university, who found themselves as little gods just because they knew how to setup an rc.conf manually in nano. Some of those are spread in important open source projects, who believe they need to reinvent the wheel. And that's the problem my friend.
