Debian, Ubuntu's parent distribution, has set up Debian Bug No. 1 which also reads "Microsoft has a majority market share". Mandriva, another competing distribution has set up Mandriva Bug No. 1: "Microsoft has a majority market share and Ubuntu has a majority market share on the Linux desktop".

Refracta is one of the few full-service Linux distros that makes an easy and more convenient replacement for pocket Linux options such as Puppy Linux. Not all Linux distros that install to a USB drive -- and have the ability to save files and system settings in a persistent mode -- work equally well. Read more
