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.

I don't understand the fuss

Ubuntu seems barely useable compared to MEPIS or KNOPPIX live cd's and the accompanying rock solid hard drive installs. After having installed virtually all single disk and multi disk distros I have found IMHO that KDE is a far better desktop than gnome although there are some excellent gnome based apps. So all this commotion seems out of place for such an incomplete distro.
