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."

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.
