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.

Ubuntu is great. The last 7 years I used different distributions, but always prefered Debian. The only problem I had with Debian was, that I had to do too much manually to get a decent desktop. Not anymore, Ubuntu just works and still is Debian under the hood.

The only problem I have with Ubuntu is that I miss Galeon. Are there any Galeon packages available? I couldn't find it in the software repository.
