Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu

Ubuntu, the platform used in the majority of cloud deployments worldwide, today released version 16.10 with hybrid cloud operations, bare-metal cloud performance, the ability to lift-and-shift 80% of Linux VMs to machine containers, Kubernetes for world-leading process-container coordination, full container support in OpenStack, and telco-grade networking latency enhancements.

...this isn't really about the desktop anymore, is it?

No, one can tell that I have better things to do with my life than trying every single Linux distribution listed on Distrowatch since 1995.


No one is trying to do so. But by that same token, one should refrain from issuing blanket statements about a subject that he/she apparently is purposely avoiding at all costs.

I mean Yggdrasil, really? You should have thrown SLS in as well. ^_^

And as correctly pointed out by other posters, Ubuntu not only does little in terms of actual contributions to the Linux kernel - i.e. hardware compatibility improvements you keep praising it for - but it is currently so set on its own ways due to the worst case of NIH syndrome I have ever seen (Unity, Mir, upstart, indicators, snap, etc.) that it has practically become a different beast altogether.

And it keeps breaking functionality/compatibility with typical Linux stuff where you least expect all the damn time!

If you wish to stay in an Ubuntu-centric environment for whatever reason, I'd posit that Linux Mint does a better job at "being Ubuntu" than Ubuntu itself.

But the last thing I want is to tell you how you should live your life. Different strokes for different folks and all that jazz.

Ubuntu and Red-Hat are the best supported distributions by ISV vendors, sorry if I don't want to waste time figuring out hardware support, and also why software doesn't install properly or runs on distribution flavor of the day.
