Four Most Unique Ubuntu Derivatives

,----[ Quote ]
| Thereâs no doubt that Ubuntu has 
| transformed the Linux landscape since its 
| introduction six years ago. It has modified 
| a few key technologies to ensure generally 
| demanding tasks under Linux, simpler for 
| even early computer users. Although, Ubuntu 
| was a debian-based distro, it is a popular 
| framework for several other distros.
| Although you can take a basic Ubuntu source 
| code and make it into almost anything, 
| derivatives are quite popular because they 
| eliminate the need for custom 
| configurations. The huge number of distros 
| testifies to that!


The often undervalued opinion of the end-user

,----[ Quote ]
| There are over ten million users of Ubuntu 
| world wide. That means that there are ten 
| million people who have made a conscious 
| decision to install Ubuntu on their 
| computer. If these ten million people 
| werenât here, then we wouldnât exist. We 
| serve the end user, and because we serve 
| them, we want to keep them happy by 
| providing what they want.


I don't like what people tell me is good for me

,----[ Quote ]
| At any rate, the point I wanted to make was 
| simply that people need to complain and 
| need to rant about things, if you want them 
| to be good. So please donât take my rants 
| always as negative, I do rant, and 
| sometimes I rant a lot but I usually do 
| that because I want to improve the 
| situation.


Ubuntu Art: March

,----[ Quote ]
| One of my many jobs in the community is to 
| bring you lovely Ubuntu planet readers some 
| of the wonderful art works that are created 
| using Ubuntu and the FOSS tools we have in 
| the repositories, all these works come from 
| the Ubuntu deviantArt group.


Ubuntu Lucid and THAT button layout

,----[ Quote ]
| OK, so as an ardent GUI Designer and 
| general fan of winning computer interface 
| design, I took a strong interest in 
| Canonicalâs recent announcement about their 
| new Ubuntu branding, complete with two new 
| default themes set to appear in the 
| upcoming âLucid Lynxâ LTS release in April 
| â named âAmbienceâ and âRadianceâ.

,----[ Quote ]
