Explaining Why We Don't Endorse Other Systems

http://www.gnu.org

"We're often asked why we don't endorse a particular system—usually a popular GNU/Linux distribution. The short answer to that question is that they don't follow the free system distribution guidelines. But since it isn't always easy to see how a particular system fails to follow the guidelines, we still get these questions.

What is going on with Ubuntu anyway?

http://linuxgeeksunited.blogspot.com

I titled this similarly to my previous post about PCLinuxOS. Why, because I would like to take a crack at 'identifying' Ubuntu in order to give potential users an idea of what it is and who it appeals to. If you came here looking for a sharp criticism of Ubuntu, this ain't it.
