Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu After announcing the move to Unity, and the eventual move to Wayland further down the line (someday one day perhaps eventually maybe once when unicorns roam the earth), Ubuntu is announcing yet another major change, this time in its release policy. While they're not moving to a rolling release as some websites are claiming, they will update components and applications more often.

Bogus; the Linux software managment system is *amazing* and far better than any of the comparable alternatives. yum / apt / zypper are all good tools. More projects should use the OBS; then they can offer one-click installs that automatically add the repo and install the packages. This works VERY well. Check out installing Monodevelop and Banshee as good examples.

Of course Ubuntu is the worst for this because it is more of a fork than a distro - but it still works reasonably well. Switch to openSUSE for a distribution "for humans who need to get work done".
