Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ah, it's that time of the year again. We already had this up on the sidebar, but I figured we'd turn it into a proper front page item - mostly because I want to discuss the move by the Ubuntu team to no longer install GNOME 2 as the 'classic' desktop option - which pretty much ends any and all involvement for me with Ubuntu (KDE 4 here I come). There's more to this than just that, of course, so those of you who do like Unity still have enough reason to upgrade.

Debian enterprise edition

Think of Ubuntu to Debian as Red Hat to Fedora.

The community doesn't really matter to the direction of Ubuntu because they are a BUSINESS trying to make MONEY. It's their JOB to differentiate Ubuntu in the Linux and OS world, then to make money by doing that.

I switched after 5.10 and the reasons I left back then are the same reasons people are leaving now.

Don't like Ubuntu? Go to Debian, LMDE, Arch, Suse whatever: They care as much as I do...

Actually, Unity seems to be an ironic name, isn't it.
I haven't seen it cause any kind of union between users, developers or distros...
