Ubuntu

With the release of the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B and its ARM Cortex-A7 CPU, users are offered a number of ways of running Ubuntu. I took a look at an Ubuntu 14.10 / Linaro 15.01 developer image and was impressed. The boot up time to a desktop of 11 seconds is spectacular in itself.

Fortunately we had our interest in Canonical's open-source Ubuntu Mobile operating system reignited at MWC 2015, as we finally got to see the platform in its full glory running on the Meizu MX4 smartphone.

What is keeping you from switching to Linux?

I'd like to make time for switching my main system but it is not there yet. What I plan to do is however use Linux on my laptop and get used to it this way.
