Why GNU/Linux for academics and why Debian in particular?

| While this is not exhaustive these are some of 
| the reasons why I choose GNU/Linux and Debian. 
| So why not Ubuntu you ask? Well in my opinion, 
| itâs buggier, because they release too often 
| and I donât really trust Canonical and Mark 
| Shuttleworth. I see Mark as a little bit of a 
| leech on Debian and while I think Ubuntu has 
| contributed to Debian and upstream projects, 
| it still seems meager compared to how much 
| theyâve benefited. Debianâs slow release cycle 
| also means you donât have to update as often 
| and you get a release that is more stable. All 
| Ubuntu does is add some frosting on the cake 
| and that frosting looks more and more like Mac 
| OS X.
