Caveats

This is not a criticism of the review, or the reviewer, just a comment on a couple of his statements.

He went on for a while about how the releases had weird names (which I like, personally), and rattled off the development nicknames the various releases have had (or will have) before their release. These aren't the release names. Still, this impression is probably common, and that distinction should be emphasised better.

Later he complained about how Ubuntu is a Gnome release, and that he was told that KDE fans should use a KDE distro. Even though he was able to find the kubuntu-desktop, he apparently wasn't aware that Kubuntu, done by the same people, was just such a distro. Perhaps the developers or marketers could do a better job of pointing out Kubuntu to KDE fans, rather than pointing them in the general direction of any KDE distro - it would make those fans feel better supported.

the names are also used in the repository directory names for apt or Synaptic
