  • How many people use Ubuntu?

    To celebrate our upcoming 16.04 LTS we wanted to shine a bit of light on how many people in the world actually use Ubuntu. As users aren’t required to register their installation, devices are pre-loaded with the software and servers powered by Ubuntu – this means it’s not as easy to track users. However the reality is, hundreds of millions of PCs, servers, devices, virtual machines, and containers have booted Ubuntu to date and are in use!

  • I would like Debian to stop shipping XScreenSaver

  • Adapt – Run any app version on any Ubuntu version

    Adapt is a simple, yet very useful application that can be used to install any package from any release of Ubuntu into any version of Ubuntu without using any PPA. You don’t have to wait for the developers to update their PPA for any particular application. Just install adapt, and start installing the app you want on any Ubuntu version. Not only from Ubuntu, you can run any application from any other Linux distribution, for example CentOS. In layman terms, Adapt is like apt command that allows us to run old software on a newer OS or newer software on an older OS. Sounds awesome? Yeah, it should be.

Bad Thing #1 – It's not open source

That's right. The software for running Ubuntu Linux's userland applications on Windows is, at least as of this writing, closed source.

That just plain stinks. Hopefully this gets remedied quickly. It's early enough that I'm willing to give the team behind this the benefit of the doubt that, by the time there is an official public release, there will be source code available under a reasonable license.
