My thoughts on Ubuntu
September 26, 2007
Linux is just a kernel (the core of an OS) each “distro” contains a unique set of applications that control the look and feel of linux.
Randomly I found this cartoon today. It expresses my feelings on Ubuntu perfectly…
But don’t get me wrong. I don’t hate non-Microsoft operating systems. I just poke fun at them. I think Linux is great for some systems, like servers running as a “black-box” with no monitor or keyboard.
By the way, since we’re on the OS topic again I have to bring up Vista. I love bragging about how well it’s doing, since everyone else keeps lying about it.
You can monitor OS popularity using this NetApps site. I wasn’t surprised to see Vista gained 6.2% since last September while Mac OS gained 0.55% and Mac OS X has only gained 1.98%. So much for that momentum Stevie always talks about.
In all fairness though, I do think Mac OS X is the best Unix distro EVER. It’s a great operating system. I strongly recommend it to people who don’t know how to use a computer and have no interest in learning.
I’ve always said Apple’s OS is great for people who don’t mind drawing inside the lines. *snickers*
Viva La Vista!
