Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu has come under a decent amount of flack over the past few months, particularly over their decision to use the 'Dash Search' to return results from Amazon by default in their most recent release.

I think Mac OS X being UNIX based is just a matter of luck.

They needed Steve back on board and NeXT being a UNIX helped to save Mac OS, while bringing more developers on board.

If Apple had gone BeOS there wouldn't be a UNIX base to talk about.

Now that they have lots of people on their systems, there is no need to captivate the UNIX crowd for software.
