Distro Wars – Ubuntu 8.04 (LTS) Released

Nothing better than troll-feeding the OS wars. Next comes the wars of preferred Desktop Environments, then favorite editor and long down the list comes the distribution war among different GNU/Linux distribution fanatics. About 7 hours ago, Ubuntu 8.04 (Long Term Support) a.k.a. Hardy Heron was released. [Download Ubuntu ISO images here, or order free CDs, without any shipping charges, here.] In the free software world, if you hold a major stake in the desktop OS reach, such a news is a big deal!

Big deal sure, but not for everyone! However big the name becomes, it’ll never be bigger than the word “porn. But for fedorites, porn comes just behind the next fedora release. The next stable release, Fedora 9, codename Sulphur, from ‘The Fedora Project’ is scheduled in next 20 days or so. Here is a take, by nicu, a Fedora People regular, on the latest Ubuntu release:

Ubuntu Relesead

Whatever anyone says, one thing is sure: the strip is funny… rib-tickling! 😀 In the meantime, if you want to try Fedora 9 Preview release, go here.

Personally, I try to stay away from distro-wars. As long as it is GNU/Linux, I’m happy and quite comfortable with it.
