Why did I choose to use Ubuntu

 ,----[ Quote ]
| Currently I prefer to use Ubuntu, after I 
| felt the ability to provide Ubuntu Graphical 
| on my laptop, especially Ubuntu 10.04. There 
| are a few that made me feel at home using 
| and choosing Ubuntu Linux operating system, 
| which are as follows:
|    1. No Virus â because Linux does not 
|    recognize the files of his Win32 
|    executables, so the possibility of 
|    taxable virus is 0%, it is also felt by 
|    fellow users of the Linux operating 
|    system in general.
|    2. Open Source â Linux distributions are 
|    open source and the source code can be 
|    edited and modified according to our 
|    needs. We can learn how to work the 
|    Ubuntu (Linux)  Operating System


Why Iâm using Ubuntu now

,----[ Quote ]
| Well, the main reason is because trying out 
| different Linux distributions is so much 
| fun, isnât it? There was nothing really 
| wrong with Fedora, in fact it did a lot of 
| things right, but I wanted to configure my 
| file server with a lightweight environment 
| and then leave it alone. Iâve spent too much 
| time on that thing already.
| Firstly, I replaced Ubuntu with Arch and 
| LXDE, to see if I could get it working with 
| anything else than Ubuntu. Iâve installed 
| Arch probably 50 times before, but this time 
| I couldnât get the keyboard layout right in 
| X. Hal should take care of that, and yet it 
| didnât. Also, the screen resolution was way 
| off, and I couldnât get the nouveau drivers 
| configured, while the chipset was too old 
| for the regular nvidia driver. Exit Arch.
| [...]
| As always, installing and using Ubuntu is a 
| very agreeable experience. As with Fedora, 
| all hardware worked out of the box, and 
| installing extra codecs and suchlike was a 
| bit easier. It doesnât look as sleek as 
| Fedora, but it doesnât look bad either. A 
| bit heavy for a theme called âLightâ, but 
| otherwise okay. I do think the focus on 
| looks is a good thing, and I must admit that 
| picture of a PC that runs Ubuntu looks very 
| good.


Ubuntu One good enough to convert a Dropbox user?

,----[ Quote ]
| I like the way Ubuntu One will sync up 
| databases. This is a great feature for 
| developers, and I hope more will take 
| advantage of it. Apart from that one feature 
| though Dropbox is the better product. It is 
| easy to install and use, pricing is better, 
| it works across operating systems, and is 
| something you could recommend to your 
| technically challenged friends.


Ubuntu: Harder to Use, or Just Harder to Spell?

,----[ Quote ]
| Now, for many FOSS aficionados, the post 
| serves as a bright spot of comic relief in a 
| world otherwise dominated by all-too-real, 
| anti-Linux FUD.
| " Hahha," wrote one anonymous reader in the 
| comments on Hoogland's blog, for example. 
| "One of the most hilarious article on Ubuntu 
| ever."
| Some were even inspired to continue in the 
| same sarcastic vein: "Ubuntu; why would 
| anyone want to use that?" wrote another 
| anonymous commenter. "Any fool could see 
| that Windows is the best choice. Expensive, 
| proprietary and restrictive is always better 
| than free as in freedom." 



Btrfs and the Ubuntu spin machine

,----[ Quote ]
| Alone among GNU/Linux distributions, Ubuntu
| has managed to project the impression that it
| is the best first choice for someone who
| wants to test the Linux waters. Put this down
| to slick media management.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
