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.

RE: And how did they do that

Ease of use, successful detection and installation, pleasant theme, good support, single CD producing usable installation. Just to name a few.

Mostly it was the one of the better experiences I had with Linux distros. It took less work than usual to get things working. Just my opinion, so take with a large pinch of salt.

I'm looking forward to the KDE equivalent, as I prefer some of the KDE apps over the GNOME equivalents.
