7 reasons why Ubuntu is so successful

Posted 07-06-2011 at 04:01 AM by dEnDrOn

1) A good start: Ubuntu started with a strong background. It wasn’t “yet another” distribution, it was a distribution that had a vision and enough people and money behind it to support that vision.

2) Easy and straightforward installation: From the text-based installer of the first few versions, to the point&click installer of today, ubuntu always had a very straightforward and simple installation. Every step of the installer was explained in a short, yet clear manner that made...

It all depends on your needs. The reason there are so many distros is because each tries to accommodate the needs of different groups of users.

Yea, sort of weird post again, nevertheless, I'll publish this.
I'm worried much about Japan.

I wish everyone will be safe there. I wish this sort of <insert_your_definition> will never ever happen to their place again, and I wish they restore quickly, to even greater state in which Japan ever was before!

Now on kernel 2.6.37, it never goes below 11 W, and sometimes hovers around 12...this annoys me, because it does take a hit on my lappy's battery life (what once was 4+ hours is now 3- ).

I've been feeling kinda depressed (more so than usual ) over the past few days...I've just recently gotten over a cold, and I may actually still be getting over it, so that could be part of the problem, but I also think it may have to do with the fact that I haven't really done much *new* WRT computers/Linux recently.
