This. Ubuntu has a horrible track record with regressions between releases.

Whats going to happen when they reach Z :o

Personally id like ubuntu 13.10 to fail and fail miserably, with Mir on the horizon that might actually happen. What irritates me about Cononical/ubuntu is the fact that its seen as the "default" linux distro. The one everyone raves about when really its just turning into a bloated piece of spyware. Its the Microsoft Windows of the Linux world. :angry:

Windows isn't really bloated.. Ubuntu is more bloated than Windows.. but you can easily clean it up..

I understand my wording may have been slightly misleading, I was referring to OEM windows installations that pile a load of crap on the hard disk. That's what Ubuntu reminds me of. They are trying to be far too commercial for my liking and IMO it wont be long until Ubuntu becomes the new Red Hat Enterprise Linux, which to be fair wont be a bad thing for them from a business point of view.

When they get to Z, I believe they are starting again with A, just to make sure they don't repeat any animal.

Mine too. As for what is coming, I expect more of the same. I doubt you will see huge changes since now they are trying to add mobile to the mix.

Huge Difference.. OEMS totally trash the OS.. just like must are doing with Android. Ubuntu is getting pretty bloated, I still prefer it over windows.

Every bit of which is easily removable, though this is definitely the funniest name I've heard Ubuntu called even if it is completely wrong.

And even then, it wouldn't be so stable. It will need to evolve, just like Unity
