Why I Ubuntu

Filed under
Ubuntu

Linux is small enough. Let’s face it, most computer users don’t even know about Linux, let alone know what Ubuntu is. However, among new Linux users, Ubuntu is quickly becoming synonymous with Linux. And that is a shame.

Linux has a breadth and depth to it that is hard to fathom for new users. They are confused by the myriad of options because they are used to having a lack of choice if they are migrating from either Windows or the Mac. They seek solace in uniformity and conformity because it is a known entity and familiar. They want to have other users who are like them. A big user base and lots of applications is what they want.

That is not why I use Ubuntu. At least not entirely. I just like Ubuntu. I have tried every major distro and keep on going back to Ubuntu for one reason or another. I wander away because that is my nature. I am restless and am always seeking new things and challenges. When my system is working smoothly I seek to find a way to break it or just want to start over for the fun of it. Crazy? I know!
