Tux Machines (TM)-specific
I use Dapper Drake on my laptop because it doesn't do everything I want it to do. But, I'm bound and determined to make sure the final release can do everything I want it to do.
Back in the day, I used to change distros faster than Distrowatch could index them. I loved experimenting with new, exciting distributions. I still do. I keep the hard drive in my old laptop primed to play with the latest Alpha release of Foobar Linux. At long last I have settled into the happy home of Ubuntu. In the next few minutes I want to share with you why I think technological excellence plays second fiddle to human needs and aspirations.
To be perfectly fair, Ubuntu is a lot like every other distribution out there.
So, why does a self-professed Distro Junkie like myself settle down to use a distribution that uses the same applications everyone else does?
