Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The 2007 road map for the Ubuntu Linux operating system includes continuing its focus on the desktop, paying more attention to the server and garnering additional corporate support. Speaking at Ubuntu user conference UbuCon at Google's New York complex on Feb. 16, Steve George, director of support and services at Canonical, said, "The view from the Ubuntu side is that Microsoft has too much of the market. We're going to continue rolling out and making Ubuntu easy to use on the desktop and we'll add increased focus on the server this year."

I am not going to argue about that (althoug to my mind Ubuntu is one of the most overrated distros around) but I just reported my experience. I shifted from Kubuntu / Ubuntu 6.10 to openSuSE 10.2 and suddenly realized that KDE is faster, more stable and more polished on SuSE than on Ubuntu. I ahd many issues with Kubuntu - sometimes apps did not start after clicking, sometimes x windows crashed unexpectedly. As a result I was fed with this stuff and tried SuSE. None of thoes problems.
Well, if Kubuntu works for you, that's good.

Not at all. SuSE is a bit slow at booting (not slower than my XP box in fact) but it runs quite fast in fact. I don't see any difference with Ubuntu. Ubuntu is a bit overrated in this are too.

Same to you. I guess different distros work better/worse on different hardware. Also, someone may have personal preferences for the way a particular distro does things.

To each his own. It's all good. :-)
