Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just like Eugenia yesterday, I also upgraded my laptop's Ubuntu Feisty installation to Gutsy a few days ago. The upgrade process went completely awry, though, so I was forced to do a fresh install. Not a bad thing, as it gave me the opportunity to take a look at Ubuntu's soon-to-be-released Gutsy Gibbon with GNOME 2.20

another "year of Ubuntu" ?

If there ever is going to be a 'year of the desktop' for Linux, the 2007/2008 season definitely is a strong contender.

Width all the respect - last time I heard something like that it was in April. (about 'revolutionary' 7.04)

In my opinion "year od Linux desktop" will come when there will be no copies of XP in shops anymore.

What exactly defines "The year of the LINUX Desktop"

If it means increased market share then the last 5 years have qualified.

It will NEVER wipe out Windows so stop dreaming.

As far as LINUX being ready for the desktop, I believe it is there, I think it was more or less there with Edgy. Everything since has just been frosting.
