Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This could potentially be quite big for Ubuntu and Linux in general. Canonical and the Chinese government have announced a collaboration to build a version of Ubuntu specifically for the Chinese market, which will become the reference architecture for standard operating systems in the country.

While X.org has never broken one of my updates. I'm sure its possible, especially if you use binary graphics drivers.

Its well known that linux does not keep a stable binary kernel abi.

What would you expect as a debate topic, exactly? Why keeping a stable kernel abi would be a good thing?

Although Xorg is getting close to being replaced by Mir and Wayland, these issues will most likely remain, due to the kernel abi.



These issues disappear if you simply use the open source graphics drivers that come with the Linux kernel.

Which such if you are doing serious graphics programming.

One of the reasons I keep Windows as my main laptop OS.
