A comment made against my "6 biggest wins for Linux in 2007" (read the comment by mzilikazi) has highlighted something that concerns me within the community.
Because Linux has such a wealth of options; a lot of users have their system of choice and will defend it to the end. A lot of us will continue fleeting around trying to find the one that suits us best. Unfortunately there seems to be a sense of anger/jealousy towards popular releases such as Ubuntu. I wrote quite some time ago about "some" being Kane to Ubuntu's Abel and I think this is just another case of that.
Ubuntu is in the "news" more
Ubuntu has a very strong user base and while I do admire and respect it a lot; it's not my favourite release.
