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.

GUI holy wars aside, a much more interesting question is how this "Software Center" thing will pan out. For those not in the know, Ubuntu's Software Center just started selling paid (closed source) apps. However, Ubuntu has a rather bad habit of breaking binary compatibility between releases, so if Ubuntu breaks binary compatibility in the next release and the developer of the paid app doesn't issue a patch, what will happen? Will you get a refund?
