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.

RE[2]: Agree 100%

The funny thing is Canonical is getting into a sticky situation. They have to either:
1. Use Mono and all its problems (no matter what Miguel and Co. would like us to believe)
2. Use a KDE-based application, which are aplenty (as seen by numerous posts above).

Finally, its boiling down to -- do we really need default Ubuntu+GNOME at all as the flagship product? Why not switch to Kubuntu+KDE4 and apply all those paper-cuts and tweaks that they do with the GNOME one so we can have the top of the range applications running without apology ...


Why in the world can't they switch to using Kubuntu as their default offering and tweaking it to make it user-friendly? 10 iterations with Ubuntu+GNOME has not exactly set the Linux desktop on fire!
