BQ Aquaris E45 Ubuntu Edition review

Reviews
Ubuntu

As the first ever Ubuntu Phone the BQ Aquaris E45 Ubuntu Edition had the potential to wow and prove there's life beyond Apple and Android, but unfortunately it fails.

5 Reasons Not To "Not Use Linux"

2000+ people have already watched Tim's video and that is potentially 2000 people that might not use Linux based on invalid arguments. Hopefully a few more people will read this article and therefore redress the balance somewhat. Before I go I wanted to mention that Tim has produced his own counter argument called "5 Reasons To Use Linux". The points in that video state that Linux is multikernel, is open source, has support for many different hardware devices such as the Raspberry PI, has lots of distros (which kind of counters against point 5 in the reasons not to use Linux) and finally it is free.
