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.

Yes I am very annoyed: why on earth I should be patient when they came out with a debian testing a little modified and polished and nothing more? And people hype it as the best thing? I think seriously I will write a piece for osnews titled "value added distributions" to explain that:

-I like forks
-but a fork should add more value (real value)
-you cannot call a distribution "a desktop distribution" just because it includes gnome
-you cannot call a distribution "a powerful server distribution" just because it includes apache
