Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Yes, yes, it's that time of the year again - a new Fiona Apple album confirmed (which makes anything that happens between now and spring 2011 irrelevant and annoying), MorphOS 2.6 released (will be the next news item), and, of course, a new Ubuntu release showcasing the best of the best that the Free software world has to offer in the desktop world.

Rhaaa, for ****'s sake, everybody shouted at Ubuntu for being to bleeding-edge and shipping with broken last-minute implementations, and now...

its cause it seems a bit odd to bump the version number just because you integrate your store into the package manager

They are not bumping the version number ;)
10.10 - October 2010.

All their releases are "bumping" the version number, because they're, you know, dates ;)

I wonder if there's a bug in the Unicode handling of OSnews?

I have no problem at all with bleeding edge or, obviously for an early-adopter, with the associated bugs. During most releases Ubuntu feels like it's leaping forward at a pace, but Maverick just feels like a stop-gap until unico- oops, I mean GNOME 3. Fiddling round the edges. This is one of the problems with a 6-month cycle; some releases will be inevitably humdrum.

Still, it's provided something to moan about, and that's always a boon!

Indeed. Steady and stable is a *good* thing for any distro that wants to win over "Joe User" en masse. Users who want to chase the bleeding edge would probably be happier with something like Fedora or Debian Unstable
