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.

I like Unity, so I think I'm moving to Linux Mint where presumably I can still install Unity. I know Mint's founder is anti-Israel and doesn't want anyone to use his distro unless they share his political opinions, but I figure he's less of a threat to me than Ubuntu.


Clem has apologised repeatedly for his 2009 rant against Israel, stepped back from the black/white view he expressed in it, and reaffirmed the apolitical nature of Linux Mint. Given that the Mint Box his project started producing last year are made by an Israeli company, I think it's pretty clear that he no longer holds the position he expressed in that post. See his response to a commentator here:
