Ubuntu is not Linux - pass it on!
OK, I've lost it.
Now hear this: could everybody PLEASE stop referring to Ubuntu as a Linux distro?
I'm sorry. The Windows people flocking to Ubuntu is getting like... how shall I explain... like Columbus visiting the New World and not only did he go back calling the natives the wrong name, but also thinking that America is only three miles wide and covered with sand because that's how far he got.
Ubuntu is a fork. It has less in common with the rest of Linux by now than BSD does.
