'Red Hat demise not Ubuntu goal'

Filed under
Ubuntu

Reacting to a recent editorial by Free Software Magazine's Tony Mobily in which Mobily said Ubuntu will bring about Red Hat's demise, Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth said undermining Red Hat is not on his agenda.

Writing on his blog yesterday Shuttleworth said "this would be a good time to remind all of us in the Ubuntu community that Red Hat's demise is not our goal, and not how we should measure our success."

Shuttleworth said that as much as undermining Red Hat was not an Ubuntu goal, he also believed that Red Hat was well established in its focus sectors, particularly the high-availability enterprise sector, and it would be a long time still before Ubuntu held the same position.

He said also that, importantly, the goals of the two organisations are very different.

5 Surprising Reasons Behind The GNOME Resurgence

When the team behind GNOME came out with GNOME 3, which included the infamous GNOME Shell, the most popular desktop environment of the time saw a sharp decrease in users. And honestly, that trend is pretty easy to explain. When GNOME 3 initially came out, it was incomplete, buggy, and foreign. The concepts behind GNOME Shell were never before seen on a desktop system, and lots of users who were used to panels/taskbars and menus didn’t like the rather dramatic changes. Read more
