I mentioned in a recent post to the Mid-Hudson Valley Linux User Group mail list that I used Ubuntu. A fellow member replied by mentioning that they favored Fedora and asked why I used Ubuntu.
Here is my reply:
I *only* use Ubuntu for one reason. Not because it is the “best” technically — though I do favor it because it is based on Debian — but because it has the largest community behind it, and so is the best candidate to make Linux a real contender.
For Linux to succeed its market share must overtake that of Apple. Doing that will really push Linux into the mainstream. Until that day comes Linux will remain on the fringe.
