Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Well, this is a welcome surprise for those of us waiting for Ubuntu 10.04, the Lucid Lynx. Several users are reporting that their iPod Touches and iPhones (including the 3GS) work in alpha 3 - without tweaking, without jailbreaking, without patching - with Nautilus and Rythmbox.

Kubuntu?

I guess they will forget about Kubuntu and Amarok alltogether... Unless someone can reassure us.

Probably. Perhaps they should drop Kubuntu altogether, Ubuntu is primarily a GNOME distro and Kubuntu is always second class there. As a GNOME user I don't care one way or the other, there are loads of good KDE distros from what I've heard. Ubuntu isn't focused on KDE, and that's been apparent from the beginning.

Why would they? It's better than other KDE distros (oooooh, that's going to sting some people). It just works, at least for me which is after all what I care about.
As someone who just gave up on OpenSUSE it is really be nice to be back in Kubuntu. Sorry, I cant stand package management from the stone age and the overall horrors of Yast. Sorry but Yast is ass. Don't even get me started on Mandriva (Yes, I've tried it).
