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."

The thing I hate about Ubuntu...

is the missing dvd-collection of packages. Come on, I don't want to download everything that is located in universe or multiverse, please put those on a disk and put it on the mirrors (with updates if required). More important, allow the apt-get to install from such offline "reposiotories", so I don't have to manually install each one with dpkg.

I'm tired of catching dependencies from a single packages and manually downloading all those just to have it all installed up on a machine which doesn't haver internet access. Fedora and SUSE at least come with a whole package on dvd(s).

Another thing I don't like is gnome-centric community. Distribution plans ("goals", as in launchpad) are often centered around gnome features, I haven't seen KDE even being mentioned there. It is like Kubuntu people have to follow everything gnome people devise as release features. KDE is't really a first citizen in Ubuntu.
