I ran Kubuntu for years. It's still pretty good, and they seem to have pulled out of their post-4.0 funk when they couldn't push a working release out the door for like two years without fucking something up (yeah, that's when I left). Last time I looked at it (11.04) it looked pretty good.

I'm still staying with Arch. Once I found out how much easier it was to manage a rolling release system, I can't ever see myself going back to the "guaranteed to break catastrophically every six months without fail" release cycle. Honestly, that is reason #1 why I will not be going back to *buntu.

Social mobility is low. Full stop. Everywhere, at all times throughout history, those who break through to a higher economic class are the exception, not the rule. Social and economic mobility is higher now than at any other time in our recorded history. I have looked it up, thanks.

And if you somehow think that investing your capital in the work of others isn't a service...well, I don't know what to tell you. You're wrong.
