I'm on the Verge of Leaving Ubuntu

Filed under
Ubuntu

started with Ubuntu on the day of their first release, having come from Debian. I've been loyal since then. I felt Ubuntu was trying to make some changes that needed to be made in both the Linux distro world and in Debian specifically.

I spent countless hours on teh forums working with people to help them get settled into Ubuntu. I wrote howtos for the wiki and for this blog. I never tried to monetize the blog because that's not what I created it for.

During the 7.10 Beta cycle, I reported a bug involving unmounting of removable drives. Sebastien Bacher (yes, I'm calling him out!) did nothing but argue and stall over which word would be appropriate. Eventually Sebastien disposed of the bug.

Also:

I've been struggling with moving to Ubuntu Hardy Heron for almost a week. The aforementioned random-freeze problem has become more and more of an issue, and as I said previously, this is a deal-breaker.

It's not for lack of trying to fix it, either.

I give up.

Who knew?

Apparently even fanboys have limits to the brown crap they'll put up with.

Contributing to open source software with Ian Varley of Salesforce

With open source, you're expanding the sphere of people who might potentially care a lot about your code. You find others who have similar problems, and who can leverage your work and maybe even extend it. The knowledge that you've helped someone avoid "rebuilding the wheel" is really gratifying, and it's amplified when those people actually start getting so involved that they give you contributions of code or ideas. The project picks up steam, and you might even get unforeseen help tackling those issues you didn't have bandwidth to tackle yourself. Really, it's the gift that keeps on giving. Read more
