Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Well, this is a welcome surprise for those of us waiting for Ubuntu 10.04, the Lucid Lynx.

Now, the important follow ups:

What distro?
What window manager?

Keep in mind that the answers to these questions will both inform us and provide context for all further reviews of different OS topics. I'll even invoke my mayflower privilege of extending protection under the fifth amendment to the US constitution (right to avoid self incrimination) to a non citizen.
