Edubuntu, Kubuntu, Ubuntu, Goobuntu (fake) and now Linbuntu? What makes you
think you could ever compete with large development teams, backed by a
multi-millionaire and supported by large public forums? Try to follow the
footsteps of Nokia and create a Debian-derivative that does something
unique? Linspire and cheap and rather poor, so it cannot offer much which
complements Ubuntu in my humble opinion.
