    Doesn't matter. Ubuntu still is the "Linux for the masses". Getting more mention in Phoronix (and everywhere else) is normal. But some people just can't grasp that.

    That's equivalent of using "Toyota" as a synonym for "vehicle". Inaccurate and mis-representative.

    Yeah sure, the most important Linux distro there ever was gets more mention. Very sad. No, I use Gentoo, not Ubuntu, and find this perfectly normal *and* totally acceptable.

    Seriously, this just plain wrong criticism. Ubuntu is synonymous to Linux today, there's nothing wrong with the Linux pop-world circling around it.

    It's just sad to see such "news" between otherwise quite good and valuable reports about drivers and graphics.

    Actually it's because multiple distros are using 2.6.32 _NOT_ because Ubuntu is using it

    Phoronix: Linux 2.6.32 Kernel To Be Maintained Longer

    With Ubuntu 10.04 basing off the Linux 2.6.32 kernel and this distribution release being a Long-Term Support (LTS) release that will be maintained longer than normal Ubuntu releases -- and other vendors using the Linux 2.6.32 kernel for their enterprise updates too -- this kernel will live on longer as well. Greg Kroah-Hartman has announced that the Linux 2.6.32 kernel stable tree will be a "long-term" stable release that should be maintained for two to three years. This stable branch should live on as long as a flow of stable, back-ported patches continue to arrive in Greg's email inbox...
