Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "The Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Edubuntu teams are proud to present a second Beta release of Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Edubuntu 6.06 LTS, codenamed "Dapper Drake". This release corrects some serious flaws in the installer present on the Desktop CD in the first Beta release. Although the text-mode install CD also forms part of this release, it has not been modified since Beta 1. An updated Xubuntu release is also in preparation and will be announced shortly." Hey look, a screenshot tour.

RE[3]: Ubuntu is pure crap!

I use Ubuntu 5.1, because there was no Ubuntu 6.0 DVD iso. And I already uncomment all in sources.list: universe, mainverse, src, security, but still no luck.

Yes, avidemux is not included with Ubuntu 5.10 but it will be with Ubuntu 6.06. If you want to test the beta version of Ubuntu 6.06, you can point /etc/apt/sources.list in your Ubuntu 5.10 system to "dapper" (instead of "breezy"). Then run "sudo apt-get update" and you'll be able to upgrade your system and install avidemux without reading any more manuals.

However, if you have learned to use FreeBSD's ports, then I'd expect that you already know how to read manuals. ;-) If you prefer a "ports"-like package management that allows you to build your own binaries from source, then take a look at Ubuntu's "apt-build" package (apt-cache show apt-build). For installing GNU C and C++ compilers and "make" in one go, check out the "build-essential" package.

Comparing GNOME & KDE to the Mac desktop is a bit unfair. GNOME & KDE are younger projects developed by volunteers but I'll expect that they will catch up with the proprietary Mac soon enough. Also, please consider that you can order Ubuntu from and it will be shipped to your home free of charge. Now, is that easy or not?
