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: Ubuntu is great

Slick and slim. The way Linux should be.

... provided you use GNOME. I'm not flaming you, I just wanted to qualify a somewhat accurate statement. I was a Debian user for 3 years (and looking for a little newer), and I tried Ubuntu. I thought that it was a really nice setup for people that use GNOME, but I ended up switching to Arch.

Ubuntu is wonderful for those that enjoy using GNOME, but want fresher Debian packages. It's a great setup for that. But for those not really interested in GNOME, its a bit specialized.

Anyone out there in love with Ubuntu that doesn't use GNOME?
