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.

The hardware part is very true. But I really like the apple hardware (specially the notebooks). Even when I used Ubuntu, it was on a macbook. So that's not really an issue (for *me*).

And I don't even have X11 installed, so no x11/kde (and I don't miss it a bit). What softwares written for this architectures do you miss so much?

As a Java and Ruby developer, the 1.6.0_43 java version is ok for me right no, and the RVM gives me any ruby version I want. BTW, at work I was trying to run a new version of Ruby and some gems on a Debian stable and after many many hours I just gave up (on Ubuntu it was fine). And dealing with Java versions on Ubuntu was always a pain in the arse (I use it at work, unfortunately). One time, Chrome was using one version, ff another and console was using the right one. No freaking idea why. And not installing the Sun java by default is not very pragmatic at all.

Anyway, if Linux suites you best, I'm happy for you ;) I wish I could say the same.
