To many 'buntu's for me!!

Learned most of what little I know of Linux on U/Kubuntu. Got tired of the "fanboyism" from it.

Went to Mandriva, then a few other experiments in Linux, then Zenwalk 4.0. Now use either Zenwalk 4.8 or Blag70000 on all 7 machines. Believe I prefer Blag over all of them.

But the differences are that the *buntu include functionally different Window Managers, and users can freely install all of the features of the other sets. Vista's differences are for market targetting at different price points to make a profit, and features are stripped out (and forbidden) from the lower-end products.

So, yeah, if you count the numbers, they are a lot alike. But if you look any deeper, you see the differences.

"Pre-releases of Hardy are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable
system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even
frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers
and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.

Alpha 3 is the third in a series of milestone CD images that will be
released throughout the Hardy development cycle. The Alpha images are known
to be reasonably free of showstopper CD build or installer bugs, while
representing a very recent snapshot of Hardy."
