BeOS was a weird variant?  LOL BeOS was awesome and a good contender, I was really hoping that it would get popular.  I may still get a cheap laptop to throw Haiku on some day.

Part of what you say is good about Ubuntu is exactly why I don't really care for it.


So many derivatives, aren't there enough Linux "derivatives" already, and that 3 or 4 times more users thing is really just fan boy based popularity, IMO! Not meaning it's not a good distro as it is very well funded/supported, but it just has never blown my hair back. I've had a few times happen where just getting a simple update totally screwed up my install.


I always thought a basic install was slightly bloated too, but again, just my opinion on that.

You are just not used to an operating system that is free, and allows for derivative development. This allows for others to develop a version that can specifically run as they need. People can alter and add/subtract from the kernel as they see fit.
