Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu has come under a decent amount of flack over the past few months, particularly over their decision to use the 'Dash Search' to return results from Amazon by default in their most recent release.

Well, choosing osx severely limits your hardware options.

Its a pain in the but to get the open source software I want on it ( current versions of pyton, java, php, apache, X11, gcc). Darwin ports and fink tend to fail me pretty often.

Not to mention the difficulty of getting KDE and its associated applications on it these days.

Not to mention the continuing ios-ification.

Don't get me wrong it looked really cool years ago when none of the above (except the hardware) was true, but I've grown jaded against it over the years.
