Why Ubuntu Linux Tops Debian

Filed under
Ubuntu

For those of you who have used it, you'll know that Debian is a solid distribution of Linux. Like Fedora or OpenSuSe, it was developed with all users in mind. Unfortunately, what many of the geekier users to this day fail to wrap their minds around is that this "Windows thinking" they complain about is more or less about ease of use, versus "choice." And I believe that this is why Ubuntu is, more than other Debian distributions, out-performing Debian proper.

Users not interested in mythical 'Linux education'

The idea that the average new user really ought to consider becoming more educated with Linux in order to merely use it is just plain silly. Granted, for the geek set interested in learning, this is a great plan. It will save you time and money instead of funding one of the common Linux profit models -- tech support. Give me a break. I have been using Linux for longer than I care to admit, and the fact is that most people simply want the end result, a successfully running Linux box. And I hope that most people remain clueless as it does help make sure that our favorite companies giving away their distributions can still successfully provide tech support as a business for their product. Even for generally basic tasks.
