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.

Jump on the Ubuntu bandwagon!

What does Ubuntu offer that Slackware or Debian doesn't? I am just curious and don't want to spend hours reading over tons of reviews.

There just seem to be TOO MANY distros and I think that might be the reason many people are turned away from Linux. Why can't developers band together instead of branching apart?
