Ubuntu 15.04 review, from a Plasma user’s point of view

Ubuntu

Ubuntu 15.04 is finally here. I am a known KDE Plasma user so my reader may assume that I don’t run Ubuntu (with Unity) on my desktops. Which is not true. I love technology so I use almost every possible technology, which I can afford or use (including Mac OS X and iOS). Using different technologies put me in a better position to evaluate the advantages of GNU/Linux or a particular distros or DE in comparison to the rest.

I am actually a heavy Ubuntu user. I run three Virtual Private Servers (all powered by Ubuntu 14.04 LTS) which host my cloud services as well as my web sites. I also run it on my home server because Ubuntu does a great job as a server.

Linux & the Bling Factor

I’ve spent the last decade introducing people to Linux. These weren’t “here-this-is-a-live-Linux-CD-figure-it-out-yourself-and-good-luck” encounters. We’re talking face-to-face interactions, and often those interactions took place for more than an hour. Sometimes in two or three sessions. I’ve had a chance to see and hear people’s wide range of first reactions to Linux on the desktop, and there is no way to misinterpret those reactions: Linux on the desktop will often float or sink just from the way it appears to the beholder in the first minute.
