The billboard was spotted near the Ralston exit in Redwood City, USA.

Wow it's advertising

And the "OS as a Religion" crowd the world over wets themselves.

No matter what they do it is

No matter what they do it is gonna be a while before linux is mainstream. Ive turned a few family members and friends on to it who were originally windows users and they don't like it and even find it complicating. Of course it is not as we all know but think about it, not everyone is linux enthusiasts and experienced users like ourselves.

Ubuntu really needs to fix the sound issues, the one channel sound and all. Also using a mic is a crappy task and when you finally get it set right and go to do it again a few days later after listening to music or whatever your settings are all screwed up again. Actually recently on my dapper Teamspeak voice does not work at all, and you have to go through the settings routine on skype.

If they fix that and other multimedia problems as well as some other bugs then it will finally become more mainstream.

Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition review

The Meizu Pro 5 is the latest flagship smartphone to run on Canonical’s Ubuntu operating system. Ubuntu is designed to work across all device types – including mobile, tablets, convertibles and desktops – using a common core code. This is similar to Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile. However, unlike Microsoft’s code, Ubuntu is totally open source and has largely been developed and improved by the desktop OS’s millions-strong user base. This means the OS is capable of evolving and changing at a great pace and has update cycles that would make most sysadmins weep. Read more
