Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu At the Ubuntu Developer Summit, which took place last week, it was announced that the next release of the Ubuntu Linux distribution, version 10.04, will no longer carry the GIMP in its default installation. This actually touches upon somethin I've been wanting to talk about, a problem that plagues both Linux and Mac OS X: Paint.NET is Windows-only.

spamming the thread when a simple summary would have been adequate.

The whole thread is a pretense that Linux desktops lack a particular kind of application. I can't help it if people don't believe that that is simply not the case.

Apparently, when I merely link to a page, people won't read it. So, in order to expose what the Linux desktop applications that are currently available can do, I now have to cut and paste summaries of the feature lists.

Well, it's not very likely a KDE application is going to find its way into the default Ubuntu install.

and so is providing a dozen links, something you also do a lot.

People just find those types of posts to be annoying. Summarize a link and be done with it. If they don't follow the link then that is their problem. There is never a good reason to spam a thread with that much external text.
