How is it Ubuntu specific?

Like it's not going to work on Slackware or Fedora or Gentoo.

I think I'll start writing very Slackware-specific tutorials, eg. how to list the contents of a directory on Slackware-current (32-bit only). For a 64-bit version please see a separate tutorial

BS!!!

It probably does work on Linux too and, perhaps, Unix. Remember though that Ubuntu is not Linux

I forgot about it. For that very reason, should we still allow Ubuntu questions here on LQ? Perhaps they should go together with Windows questions in /General?

Perhaps they should...
On a more serious bote I think this is done because most people starting out with Linux are expected to be using Ubuntu so the searches in google are more likely for "ubuntu" not "linux".

Fair enough. But then again, I think it's fair to say that a person who's expected to use CLI for administrative tasks should at least know the relationship between Ubuntu and Linux.

It's not that I've got a big problem with that title. I just found it funny (in an irritating way) that they would give such a generic tutorial such a specific title.

I know what you mean, I often laugh at stories about "how to do x in Ubuntu" when it turns out to be something common to most if not all distros.
