Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu We're a little late, but Real Life got in the way, so here we finally are. Canonical, the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, announced today that Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop Edition has been released. This version focusses on improvements in cloud computing on the server using Eucalyptus, further improvements in boot speed, as well as development on Netbook Remix. The related KDE, Xfce, and other variants have been released as well. Update by ELQ: Just a quick note to say that one of my Creative Commons videos was selected to be part of Ubuntu's Free Culture Showcase package that comes by default with the new Ubuntu version!

Installing Ubuntu for a relative is a bad idea since they will call you if something breaks.

This particular cancer does come from Fedora. Let's place the origin where it really belongs.

Draw brown backgrounds?

You would think that with Dell being their main OEM partner they would make sure not to break any Dell computers with an update.

They have caused problems for people with Minis as well.

I'm sorry, but to be honest most comes from Fedora, it's the Linux-testbed.

Yeah, Ubuntu ships PulseAudio with broken patches and let's blame Fedora for that. How nice

In general, Ubuntu has worked substantially better for my users, and for me, than Fedora ever did. Emprically speaking, that much is pretty definite. It's the tendrils shooting out of the Fedora camp to poison other distros which take me aback. And yes, I do blame the Ubuntu devs for falling for the hype. Ubuntu should not be using such alpha software as Pulseaudio. Red Hat's perpetual pre-alpha distro is threatening to take the rest of Linux down with it. And I think it's about time that the community started turning a more suspicious and pragmatic eye upon projects coming from under the Fedora canopy.

Some are OK. Others are quite poisonous.
