No, really! Ubuntu is not Linux! Try it on for size!
Or: "The Futility of trying to fit square Windows users into round Linux holes."
Even the best of us blow it sometime, and some of us idiot bloggers blow it every day.
My last post will have a place next anniversary as this year's "What Was I Thinking" award.
Let's start over, shall we? Here's my logic for this idea:
Linux started out 15 years ago as a free version of Unix. With me so far? OK.
Currently, the system with the biggest user share is Microsoft Windows. A lot of people want to leave it. This is a GOOD thing! A lot of people just want something that works without needing a Master's Degree in computer science. I AM PERFECTLY HAPPY WITH THAT! It is a *GOOD* thing that they are able to seek their own freedom, however they define it. I haven't messed up yet, have I?
Now, there's this project called "ReactOS", which is being built as a free replacement for Windows. For reason/reasons unknown, ex-Windows users leaving Windows and seeking a free alternative somehow do not seem to be flocking to ReactOS.
