If I never see another article that implies that "Ubuntu IS Linux", I'll be
As a public school teacher, I do nearly all of my distro hopping/testing during summber break.
So, I'm using the latest Sidux release on this desktop box right now (pclinuxos on my other box)--some problems with the install updates and getting the nvidia proprietary drivers going (I know, purists will declaim using the NVidia proprietary drivers as a sin--and I read Phoronix regularly, and when the open AMD/ATI drivers become as good or better than NVidia's, I will buy new video cards and switch over). But once installed, and after installing all the desired multimedia codecs, I think Sidux is a very good Debian derived distro for the desktop. Not a distro necessarily for new Linux users, but for intermediate or later users, very nice.
Unlike Kubuntu, the KDE on Sidux is fairly vanilla, which I like very much.
no rehashed How tos, please.
Lots of pros use Ubuntu. It's better to divide based on merit (how novel/new is it?). 101s are repetitive.
Have to agree with the above posters.
As much as I personally dislike the constant blathering on about Ubuntu this Ubuntu that, it's a viable distro that makes the news a lot.
I don't think it would be right to censor articles here based on the fact that I'm tired of hearing about the subject.
I agree with the above poster. An article is an article and one can read it or not and move on.
There is enough squabbling between distro fanbois without an action for or against one distro to keep the fires lit.
Surprisingly enough, I voted "Indifferent".
Although I love giving Unoobtu fanboys a hard time (contrary to their belief, they did NOT invent Linux, nor is the distro that they drool over better then sliced bread) - TM is a Linux Info/News Site, so if you don't find the article interesting (or at least entertaining) skip on to the next one.
