Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "After looking around and playing with Ubuntu 7, it's safe to say that the features, ease of use and stability of this distro may be enough to edge Linux desktops into corporate offices. Given that Ubuntu supports a VMWare-like environment, you can bet that Ubuntu will crop up in many test labs as well." More at EarthWeb.

I think it's not right to "stop reading after that" just because the guy does not follow the weird ubuntu versioning number. MOST people don't understand it or have knowledge of it anyway. And yet, they are all computer users, and so their opinion counts, because as a daily computer user, you can claim if something works ok or not as another OS does, or as you expect it to.

Might count, still, if the yet another self-proclaimed reviewer hasn't got the picture even to the extent to know what the version number means, why should the readers take a leap of faith and believe the rest is worth the time. I gave the benefit of the doubt and read it. Half of it deals with beryl, and the rest could be written by the neighbor next door and doesn't give you much more than Ubuntu-is-good-because-Ubuntu-is-good. If you say this "review" counts for those "MOST" people, well, no wonder they think Linux is not for them.
