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.

vaporware

After trying on my dell the last 4.10 version of Ubuntu I just can say one word Vaporware!

Nothing special on it, nothing new (gnome 2.8 looks like 2.6) lots of bugs, poor software available. Even for a begginer is a fiasco ( No decent CD-Burning, no java, no multimedia ). If you are looking for a good debian based distro try SimplyMepis, today is my OS of choice. Worked "out of box" perfectly on a Dell Dimension 4450 and Dell Dimension 2400. Dectected all my hardware and my DVD-Burner.
Just try it and forget about Ubuntu, is only blah,blah,blah...
