I Love Ubuntu

Filed under
Ubuntu

I am curious by nature, and I’m always looking to see whether there’s something better over the horizon. I installed Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron the day after it was released, and I was impressed. But I knew there were other fine Linux distros out there, like Fedora 9, OpenSUSE, Arch, and others.
Recently I’ve tried a few of these on my laptop, but I invariably return to Ubuntu Hardy Heron.

Why? Here:

1. It just works. You put the CD in, run the installer, and, after answering a few questions, you get a nice, working Linux system that supports your hardware and is ready to go. No extra configuration, no tweaking of the UI (do you hear me, Foresight?), the drivers are loaded, and everything’s happy.

2. The default install is excellent.

  • Devuan GNU/Linux 1.0.0 "Jessie" Just Around the Corner, Release Candidate Out
    It's been five almost five months since the developers behind the Debian-based Devuan GNU/Linux operating system launched the second Beta version towards the first stable release of the OS, and they now announced the Release Candidate. The Devuan project continues its vision of providing a libre Debian fork without using the systemd init system, and the Release Candidate (RC) version brings the GNU/Linux distribution closer to a final release. The interesting fact is that this RC appears to be stable enough to be used for production work.
