    The best reason to maintain your own distro is because you think it is fun. I've played with some really cool small-time distros in my time. Sometimes it sucks because their lack of popularity...

    Poll: Re: Ubuntu GNOME and naming conventions

    I always thought it was "Zoo-buntu" myself

    I find the naming scheme to be a useful clarification for pawing through packages. IE I won't mistake xubuntu-desktop for a vanilla XFCE item. And it...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Moving files from Home to their appropriate location

    Linux uses the same kind of directory system as Windows and OS X so you may think that they all operate quite similarly. This is a mistake with Linux though as even though it looks familiar,...

    Re: Are you pushed away from the command line?

    [ubuntu] Re: Which desktop is right for me? And why?

    One of the things I like about *buntu is that with all the different flavors around, most of the major desktops have been tweaked to have an Ubuntu flair. It is a good distro for trying out the...
