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.

Corporate backing?

"tightly selected bleeding edge packages to focus the distribution on a single CD, corporate backing, 18 month support"

Bleeding edge and corporate backing in the same sentence? I'll believe it when I see it. Lots of distro's ended up trying to be everything to everyone. Not many of those around anymore. This is why Red Hat forked to RHEL and Fedora. Geeks wanted one thing, "corporate backers" wanted another.
