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.

blah @ stable

if ubunto is suppose to be so stable and Fedora is a flimsy peice of junk why is this "enterprise" distro running all the same version of software as Fedora? Cause its got the smell of Debian its stable? hey guys, kernel 2.8.1 is the same thing FC2 is using! Gnome 2.8 isn't even in a stable Fedora release yet but its in Unbunto which is so much more rock solid? I just don't get it.

Why one can claim its more stable when it hasn't even been out a month yet has all brand new software makes me laugh. Debian is stable, RHEL is stable. Something that you've been running for two weeks without problems is not allowed to be given that honor.
