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.

Some suggestions

any distribution suggestions?


Even if not Debian based, and definitely not distributions, and considering that you want to make some changes, I would suggest a bigger change:

FreeBSD
PC-BSD http://www.pcbsd.org/
OpenBSD http://www.openbsd.org/
NetBSD

and last but not least:

Open Indiana http://www.openbsd.org/

However the only "nixy" environment ready for desktop remains Os X.

If you want Linux and only Linux on desktop, and you liked old Ubuntu, I'd say give Linux Mint a try. Based on Ubuntu, Gnome desktop, as good as a Linux distro can be.
