Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu For over six years I have been hunting for a Linux distro that would allow me to replace my Windows installation. I've tried many versions of RedHat and Mandrake, and more recently, Gnoppix, Kanotix, Ubuntu, Fedora, and Knoppix. In my evaluations, I would start with high hopes that the latest and greatest distro would install smoothly, support my hardware, and create a genuinely usable system, but none of them really worked--until now. I recently came across the first distro that satisfied all my requirements: Ubuntu.

Backports?
by Devilotx on Tue 8th Feb 2005 14:26 UTC

If its based upon Debian Unstable... why in the blue hell would you get a backport? and what would would it be a backport of? something from Debian Experamental?

I thought backports were for people needing more current stuff on in debian Stable?

maybe I'm wrong...
