Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "This follow-up to the previously published article 'Ubuntu: Derivative or Fork?' takes into account most of everything that has been posted as a reaction to the first article to present a general opinion and compare them with facts derived from various resouces. You'll see that peace can be achieved between these two, and ultimately any GNU/Linux group out there."

I was one of those that fell in love with just plain vanilla debian. After trying Knoppix, Gnoppix, Mepis and others, it really boils down to (for me that is) a few simple things. A: nvidia drivers, *noppix and others allowed me to EASILY install nvidia drivers and have it up and running in no time, while with plain debian it was a pain in the a$$. B: Install, while all of the installations for all the derivatives is the same, the hardware detection for those are head and shoulders above vanilla debian install.

The way I see it, there are many camps that veiw debian in different ways. Those that want the stable release, those that want the bleeding edge, and those that just want it to work.

I for one love how Ubuntu works, I don't need bleeding edge all the time, I just "want it to work" and be done with it. The last few times I've installed Knoppix, the HD install just doesn't install clean. I have alot of useless packages that I don't need, configurations that I can't fix without muddling around all the conf files and guessing what's what. It should'nt be that way.

anywhoo, my $.2
