This is just a casual thing. I don't really care about the results.

Whatever you do do not think Ubuntu is Linux, you'll get flamed for it (Already had it happen so I know lol)

I had that discussion too when I first used Linux Ubuntu. I was told I was a wanna be, I was bullied and harassed and never fully accepted into the Linux community.

*Sigh* and they wonder why people become EMO

I'm liking CrunchBang (it's based on Ubuntu but 2352352 times faster* and very intuitive) right now. If it weren't for video games, I'd be on Linux only.

*Not based on empirical results.

IF YOU DIDN'T COMPILE THE KERNEL YOURSELF, IT'S NOT LINUX. I don't get it - it's still Linux. Ubuntu has some nice features, too.

Haha....

F.Y.I. Cross-platform is other.

I personally dislike Windows Vista. An annoying window that takes a minute to load asks to run even the simplest C++ program. Also, some "features" can get annoying.

When I saw that all of you were talking about Ubuntu, I was like "OH CRAP! did I only put Ubuntu but not other versions on the poll???"

One more thing; you said that if you don't compile the Kernel Yourself, it's not Linux. Well, Linux supposedly got its name by the phrase "Linus' Minix"

heh...

P.S. Yes, I do know that Linux is different than Ubuntu.
