Ubuntu Fans or Users?

Post by LotsaHeart »

Hello There

Are there any Ubuntu Linux Users or Fans here

I happen to be a fan, but for right now, I'm not using it (I'm still having fun with Windows OSes )

I prefer Debian, the main problem with Ubuntu is that they try to make it too user friendly, sure I don't mind it being easy but when there is a problem and all of the files are hidden for the user's sake, it really doesn't help.

I'm a fan of Ubuntu. To me, it seems like this is one of the few Linux distributions that is really trying to get Linux market share on home computers.

I have it installed on an old pc however I’ve not really played about with it that much. I do see Ubuntu been something like OSX is now in a couple of years time.

Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu, I think that also has some potential http://www.linuxmint.com/

I can understand that, Linux Mint is basically Ubuntu with some unique features of it's own and the proprietary codecs installed by default

I use the 7.10 release on a virtual machine.

It runs fine. But I wouldn't attempt to use it as my daily OS though. Being a gamer, moving to Linux would ensure that only a single game would be fully playable on my PC - and that's Doom 3. And I don't play that anymore.
