Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This could potentially be quite big for Ubuntu and Linux in general. Canonical and the Chinese government have announced a collaboration to build a version of Ubuntu specifically for the Chinese market, which will become the reference architecture for standard operating systems in the country.

>I use NVidia's own drivers often conflicts with kernel updates.

I Guess you're installing it manually from the vendor site/installer? These are not meant for end-user usage since you must manually update then every kernel update. You should be using the Canonical supplied one, which is automatically updated every kernel update, and shouldn't break unless something very funky is happening.

You say that, but only today I've had the same problem as him. Like yourself, I run Arch and installing the drivers from official Repos.

My issue was that the Nvidia binaries were compiled against a specific version of ABIs which were updated with Linux. I ended up having to rollback the updates.
