Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu MadPenguin takes a look at Flight 5 of Ubuntu Dapper, and concludes: "All in all, Ubuntu 6.06 is gearing up to be quite an impressive release. Granted, I saw some bugs during my stay on the distribution, but can I really complain? It's not a full release, so it deserves some breathing room. Considering some of the horribly authored software I've looked at over the years, I feel that Ubuntu in pre-release form is more stable than other distros when they reach final release status. It's not quite in the league of Slackware and Red Hat/Fedora in that respect yet, but it's surely getting there in a hurry."

oh, then in what way os OS X more usable? it works on less hardware, hass less programs that run on it, doesn't improve while just using it :-). From as far as I've seen Kubuntu is improving every week a loooooooooot.

OSX users don't have time to upgrade OS everyday ...

Sure don't upgrade for security?
don't upgrade for more system stability?
don't upgrade to keep your OS working with latest applications?

I hope you aren't representing all mac users ;)

These digs comparing OS X with Ubuntu are really childish and stupid.

I have an iBook with OS X 10.4 Tiger dual-booting with Kubuntu 5.10. I like them both, I use them both. There are a few things my Kubuntu can't do -- like play commercial DVD's. It also can't work wirelessly -- yet. So for playing DVDs or surfing from a wi-fi zone, I boot into the Mac. For everything else, I prefer the Linux applications. Rumor has it that Dapper Drake will be able to support Airport Extreme, and when it's ready, I'' be downloading it.
