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

As someone already pointed out previously on this thread, had it happened to any other Linux distro on the planet and the reviewer would be bashing it to death, with a large following agreeing with his conclusions. Ubuntu managed to break THE best thing about Debian - not for the first time, I shall mention - but people still will go out of their way to praise it...

Different strokes for different folks, indeed.

The guy used an unsupported method of upgrading to unsupported software... its hard to say that this makes ubuntu any worse than debian, because debian is fallable too!
