Why do I use Ubuntu?

,----[ Quote ]
| Yes, itâs that simple. Because. It. Works.
| Case in point: the other day, I dug up an 
| old iRiver T30 music player that Iâd 
| forgotten I had. There were some files that 
| I wanted to get off it. Being too lazy to 
| boot up my Linux-powered laptop, I asked my 
| wife if I could plug the her laptop running 
| Windows Vista. It was already on, and sheâd 
| just finished doing whatever it was she was 
| doing. Thatâs when the fun began.

| And Canonical has spent much of 2009 
| launching more training programs and ISV 
| (independent software vendor) efforts for 
| Ubuntu Server Edition. The initiatives have 
| even included cloud training. At the same 
| time, Canonical has been evolving Landscape 
| â its systems management platform for Ubuntu 
| desktops and servers.

Ubuntu's Jono Bacon: Managing an Open Source Community

,----[ Quote ]
| Whether a second edition is eventually 
| released is still uncertain -- and will be 
| for at least a year, according to Bacon -- 
| but that does not change the importance of 
| the conversations it is beginning to start. 
| Those conversations alone make The Art of 
| Community, faults and all, one of the more 
| significant books about free software that 
| has been released. 



Windows 7 vs Ubuntu 9.10

,----[ Quote ]
| I love Windows 7 but I canât give up by favorite
| Linux OS either. So, I finally decided to do a
| Performance Benchmark Showdown to decide who
| gets to rule on my PC. Probably, everyone knows
| whatâs new in both of them.
| [...]
| All said and done, if you need performance,
| Ubuntu is for you. If you are looking onGaming,
| you have no other choice than Windows. If you
| are looking at Features again Windows 7 is the
| one for you.

| In Ubuntu's case one of its assets is the
| work done to support netbook PCs. Ubuntu's
| Netbook Remix interface is a very slick
| alternative for the smaller screen space
| common on netbooks.


Windows 7 An Improvement, But Is Mac OS X Still Better?

,----[ Quote ]
| I feel that Mac OS X or Ubuntu are both
| better systems.


Feature-By-Feature: Ubuntu 9.10 Vs. Windows 7

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop
| Karmic Koala's desktop should be familiar
| to Windows users. Right-click menu
| shortcuts and  personalizing the desktop
| features are similar to Windows 7. The
| desktop still isn't as "glitzy" as Windows
| 7, but users can get the eye candy of
| Windows 7 with a fast graphics card and can
| choose the "Extra" settings in Ubuntu
| 9.10's "Appearance Preferences."


Ubuntu Karmic Koala- A perfect alternative to Windows 7

,----[ Quote ]
| Before you decide to pay for a Windows 7 license, I
| would humbly urge you to first download a copy of
| Karmic Koala, give it a try for a week or two and
| then make an unbiased assessment of it yourself.
| You will see that you would not have to spend money
| whatsoever on a pile of software that crumbles at
| the least attack made on it. Do you intend using
| Windows 7? Please tell us why or why you would not
| use Ubuntu.

| I was musing to my coworkers that if it had
| the following, I could switch from Linux:
| 1) A decent software packaging system.
| 2) Built-in Virtual Desktops.
| 3) Middle-button paste.
