What's with Ubuntu's naming convention? With Knoppix at least they named the distros differently. With KDE and Gnome, taking the first letter of the names was good enough. But Ubuntu and those using it have developed a silly idea and are trying desperately to make it 'cool'.

Unfortunately, most people seem to agree with them that this naming convention is just that...cool. My stomach turns...

I disagree with this notion of 'cool'. I think it is silly and unprofessional. For those that have no idea what I'm speaking of, please take special note of the names of the following distros:

  1. Edubuntu
  2. Kubuntu
  3. Ubuntu
  4. What next?
