    Reasons to be Cheerful #3: Ubuntu

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | So yes, I am very pleased with the whole thing. Anything I still need from
    | Windows I can run under Wine, and for the most part, everything I need to do
    | has a perfectly good linux-based program to do it. VLC, Firefox, Thunderbird,
    | Pidgin and xine get special mentions. Most of these are easily found using
    | the Ubuntu Package Management system.

    New version of CloneZilla just released:

    Also a new version of Deli Linux:

    | DeLi Linux stands for "Desktop Light" Linux. It is a Linux Distribution for
    | old computers, from 486 to Pentium III or so. It's focused on desktop usage.
    | It includes email clients, graphical web browser, an office programs with
    | word processor and spreadsheet, and so on. A full install, including XOrg and
    | development tools, needs not more than 750 MB of harddisk space.

    Linux everywhere

    | Take yesterday as a case in point. I checked the order status of my Elonex
    | One, and sent an email to see if my order for the One can be upgraded to the
    | One+ (bluetooth, and bigger internal memory). I then caught the train to the
    | Queen Elizabeth hospital, watching the in-train tv which is powered by some
    | Linux flavour (given the error message I saw a few weeks back). Visiting my
    | friend Simon at the QE, he’s spotted that the tv/phone/internet screens that
    | each patient has are powered by Linux. This is of course when he’s not
    | tapping away on his Asus EEE, and hopefully writing the next Da Vinci Code
    | (only better).

    Linux is truly everywhere

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | I spent a long time smiling about the Linux bootup screen that I had just
    | seen. To begin with, it reminded me that Linux, and other open-source
    | products, are now everywhere. Linux is no longer for the uber-geeks. It's not
    | just for system administrators and programmers, either. Linux is now at the
    | core of mainstream appliances, there even when you don't think that a
    | computer or operating system might be involved.
    |
    | [...]
    |
    | Finally, Moore's Law and the general trend toward cheaper and faster hardware
    | means that Linux now fits into even more places than it did before. We
    | normally think of Linux as an operating system for servers, or even for
    | desktop computers. But we can expect Linux to be at the heart of a growing
    | number of appliances, from video-on-demand devices to digital video recorders
    | (e.g., TiVo), to cellphones (e.g., Android and OpenMoko). The Linux-powered
    | refrigerator, with a built-in bar-code scanner that can tell you how long ago
    | you bought milk, isn't far behind.

    10 Reasons Why I Switched To Ubuntu

    | I’ve been running Ubuntu as my sole OS on my laptop for around 8 months now.

    80 pages of people having freezes, lockups and instability problems with
    the latest version of Ubuntu (and Fedora 9 as well) doesn't sound cheerful
    to me.

    You have a weird definition of the word.

    Thousands, maybe millions, of pages of people having freezes, lockups and
    instability problems with Windows...

    ....I guess it's all in what you look for.

    I see people creating and consuming multimedia.

    80 pages doesn't even begin to scratch the surface at the Ubuntu Forums.

    80 threads wouldn't even scratch the surface here.
