Submission + - Is brand name Ubuntu over hyped ?

An anonymous reader writes: When you go by the readings in diverse media, you are sure to find only eulogies of Ubuntu — a linux distribution which has been very popular as a neophytes Linux distribution. But this provocative article asks whether, after all is said and done, is not the brand name Ubuntu over hyped to the extent of over shadowing other Linux distributions including Ubuntu's parent distribution Debian? Because as this author has experienced, the succeeding Ubuntu releases after 6.06 has only gone down a gradual incline in the quality department.

Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
