Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Officially, Dell hasn't said a word yet about which Linux it will be preloading on its desktops and laptops. Several sources within Dell, however, have told DesktopLinux.com that Dell's desktop Linux pick is going to be Ubuntu. While unable to confirm this through official Dell channels, we have heard the same story now from several internal Dell sources. They tell us that the computer giant will be preinstalling the newly released Ubuntu 7.04. These systems will be released in late May 2007."

I'm more worried about the very short upgrade intervals. Maybe a yearly release will instead of a bi-yearly release at least with official releases with the second release being more an update and bug hunt release.
This is what the LTS (Long Term Support) releases are for. Feisty was just released and Gutsy will be the next one. I read somewhere that the next LTS Ubuntu release will likely be Gutsy+1.
