Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu My search for "the perfect Linux operating system" this time brings me to the latest incarnation of Ubuntu, version 5.04, also known as the "Hoary Hedgehog Release". Previously I was using Fedora Core 4, however due to some minor bugs it had, I wanted to try something different.

It's unfair to call it pathetic - Windows and OS X don't include a large selection of apps at all, Ubuntu gives you access to hundreds or thousands that are built to work with your system.

There's nothing stopping you installing it yourself, it just requires a manual install and won't get automatic security updates - rather like using Windows or MacOS in fact.

(also, there's the backports Apt repository where you should be able to get new versions of software installable automatically on a best-effort basis - that's likely to be enough for your usage)
