Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Perhaps most likely to raise some eyebrows is that Ubuntu 13.04 will let users purchase music or apps directly from the desktop Dash, without having to open a browser or a separate client." That's going to go down well.

8.04 was Ubuntu's best release as far as I'm concerned, and IMO the first (only?) release to actually feel mature. Before that, it always had a "getting there... not quite ready yet" feeling to it. 8.10 could have been decent, but I recall it being extremely buggy and unstable. After 8.10, Ubuntu started going off the deep end in every way Canonical could possibly conceive; Ubuntu has effectively been dead to me ever since.

Meanwhile, as Canonical continues digging Ubuntu's grave, Linux Mint has been "Ubuntu Done Right" for a while now, and their parent, Debian--already good before--continues to get even better.

It's funny, with Ubuntu destroying themselves, virtually *all* of the other distributions (ie. Ubuntu's competition) look even better without having to do any extra work on their own part. Yet, unlike Ubuntu which continues to get worse, most of the rest are improving as usual. Good thing there's choice.
