Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu It's that time of year again: a new Ubuntu release (or Kubuntu, if that's your thing). Canonical has just released Ubuntu 10.04, Lucid Lynx. This is a long term support release, meaning its supported period is far longer than that of normal releases. It comes with the latest and greatest the Free software world has to offer, while also adding some Ubuntu-specific features, of course.

I'm with you on this one. My desktop which I use at work and do all my software development on has avg uptimes of 30-60 days between reboots.

As for my laptop at home. I suspend to disk and it starts up pretty instant when I lift the lid.

Linux is rock solid and hardly ever requires a reboot - unlike other OSes. ;-)

I use all of the 3 big OSs. And I think I have to reboot my Ubuntu machine the most often. The reason is, that software updates ask me to do it. X.org locking up is also not that rare. And restarting X is like a reboot to me.

Do not forget about PulseAudio/ALSA lock-ups when only reboot brings the sound back.
