Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Perhaps most likely to raise some eyebrows is that Ubuntu 13.04 will let users purchase music or apps directly from the desktop Dash, without having to open a browser or a separate client." That's going to go down well.

as Canonical continues digging Ubuntu's grave, Linux Mint has been "Ubuntu Done Right" for a while now, and their parent, Debian--already good before--continues to get even better.
It's funny, with Ubuntu destroying themselves, virtually *all* of the other distributions (ie. Ubuntu's competition) look even better without having to do any extra work on their own part. Yet, unlike Ubuntu which continues to get worse, most of the rest are improving as usual.

It's funny, some loud(ish) pundits on the web like to see it that^ way, but Ubuntu is likely the only really growing desktop distro... (compare http://stats.wikimedia.org/archive/squid_reports/2012-10/SquidRepor... with http://stats.wikimedia.org/archive/squid_reports/2011-10/SquidRepor... - it's also funny what's happening to Mint or Debian share)
