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.

Love Unbutu
by Marcus Hesse on Tue 2nd Nov 2004 17:55 UTC

I installed Unbutu on my 5 year old Apple PowerBook G3 the other day, and boy is it great. I did it because I was unhappy with OS X's performance, and Yellow Dog 3 is now aged and not worthy of use.
Unbutu runs amazing on this system, is extremely easy to use, and I LOVE Gnome 2.8. Everything works flawlessly on my system, except sleep mode (duh) and volume control. It has blown me away, and is currently my favorite distro.
