Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu By all means, Ubuntu Linux and Canonical Ltd. have made a spectacular arrival on the Linux scene lately. The combination is like a dream come true for many, many Linux aficionados: tightly selected bleeding edge packages to focus the distribution on a single CD, corporate backing, 18 month support, that all sounds like a formidable package.

A couple of notes, though:
The menu editing isn't new to GNOME 2.8. It is simply, even in FC3, disabled by the fedora developers. Fedora Core 1 had a config option that allowed user to enable menu editing. Fedora Core 2 didn't contain such an option, which I found to be one of the biggest flaws in their implementation of GNOME.


Nautilus-cd-burner did at one point have audio cd support. It was removed due to the belief that audio cds don't quite fit into the filesystem paradigm of nautilus. However, the functionality of nautilus-cd-burner has now been separated out into a relatively easy to use library, meaning that gThumb (in 2.6.0), muine (patch available from fer), and rhythmbox (in 0.9) have cd burning in the works. And coaster - a burner project formerly aiming to use the slowly developing libburn - is now using libnautilus-burn to accelerate the development process. Hopefully we'll see the fruits of all of this soon.
