Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu 13.04 has been released, with the Linux 3.8.8 kernel, a faster and less resource hungry Unity desktop, LibreOffice 4.0, and much more. Ubuntu users will know where to get it, and you're looking for a new installation, have fun. Also fun: UbuntuKylin.

Steam isn't that buggy on Windows


TheDailyWTF tells a different story.

Ubuntu broke Steam.


No. Things changed and Valve wasn't on the ball. Ubuntu is their only officially supported Linux distro so we should really expect them to handle stuff like this.

Doesn't happen nearly as often. Which is the core of the argument


I can't remember when a program I use broke between Ubuntu versions and I've been using Ubuntu a long time.
Of course, I can't remember he last time it happened in Windows either.

Oh-comon .. most of those screen-shots were actually content update errors from their Content Management System on their webstore. So their webstore was error'd not the application itself.

There were 2 actual application errors.

Well we have to differ on opinion on that one. I don't have to worry about Steam breaking with Windows Updates.

If it is open-0source I doubt it will break, but anything outside the supported repos. You are on your own.

Perhaps but lets say, for arguments sake, that a Service Pack would change some functionality and break Steam I'm sure you would expect Valve to handle that and not Microsoft.
