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.

TT Fonts look like crap on ubuntu, I had to compile freetype and fontconfig myself. why do people still insist on compiling freetype2 with the bytecode interpreter, it makes fonts look like CRAP >:(
Anyone knows why the hell doesn't ubuntu accept CFLAGS="-march=athlon-xp"????
