Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu

Ars Technica once again provides us with an in-depth Ubuntu review:

If you've been following the Linux world at all, you know this has been an entire year for spring cleaning. Early in 2017, Canonical stopped work on its homegrown Unity desktop, Mir display server, and its larger vision of 'convergence' - a unified interface for Ubuntu for phones, tablets, and desktops.

And now almost exactly six years after Ubuntu first switched from GNOME 2 to the Unity desktop, that has been dropped, too. The distro is back to GNOME, and Canonical recently released Ubuntu 17.10, a major update with some significant changes coming to the popular Ubuntu Linux operating system.

In light of the GNOME switch, this release seems like more of a homecoming than an entirely new voyage. But that said, Ubuntu 17.10 simultaneously feels very much like the start of a new voyage for Ubuntu.

More than 8 years to do it, I call this laziness.

If it was the only bug in the queue, then yes.

The bug was found in 4.4.0. GCC is now at 6, with many OTHER bugs fixed along the way.

Like I said, you lose, but you were never going to accept anything else other than your foregone conclusion.

You've already got no more legs to stand on. Keep exposing yourself as a hack if you want.
