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.

Cause it comes from people who have not tried Linux, or have come to it with a brain already washed by mr. Steve.

Why are you assuming that?

I've used Linux exclusively for several years, and I've done the same with Windows. I've also used OS X and enjoyed it in its way. I really don't like it when people like you make these broad statements about what is or isn't good for people as if they don't have a clue. Maybe you don't have a clue. Maybe Linux is only good at a subset of the things most desktop users need. Maybe people are fine with the tradition Unix shell and utilities, but don't want to have to deal with desktop implementation issues that have been long solved in other mainstream OSes. Some people have work to get done that doesn't involve writing C in Vim or Emacs.

When I met Linux, I already knew UNIX, so what I what is a nice multimedia environment that feels like Amiga days and a development environment for my work.

Windows + (Linux | BSD) have been enough for the type of work I do, but if Macs were cheaper with more hardware options, then it would be surely the best of both worlds.

Sorry dude, but I used linux-only at home and work for 7 freaking years. But then one day I was really really pissed of cuz kdenlive crashed on me every 2min and I needed to edit a video. Since I had a macbook (but never used OSX, I had Ubuntu installed on it) I decided to give OSX a try, and in a few minutes my video was very nicely edited under iMovie. Then I tried Garage Band and Logic Pro, and my home-studio audio quality improved 1000%, this day on I never used Linux as a desktop anymore.

I used mostly Debian and Ubuntu, but tried 'em all. What I think is exactly the opposite. I'm pretty sure you never used OSX for more than a few minutes. Try it for 2 months as a desktop alternative and THEN you can give a serious opinion about it.

Btw I still use Linux/Ubuntu/Debian at work. For some things, it's the best out there (specially the server side). But as a desktop solution, for me, it sucks compared to OSX.

iMovie has its own issues... http://eugenia.queru.com/2009/04/11/stay-the-fuck-away-from-imovief...
(that said, it's probably better than anything available on Linux; but there are better choices, like Sony Vegas on Windows)
