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.

Really? NO dual booting?

I've been wanting to play with Gnome on a debian based distro, so the Ubuntu reviews had me all excited. It sounded like Ubuntu was a Mepis with Gnome. But if it's true that it won't dual boot, forget it. The live CD doesn't sound like it's close enough to the real thing to provide a realistic sense of what an installed Ubuntu would be like.

Can anybody confirm that Ubuntu doesn't dual boot. Anybody know if they plan to fix it?
