Buggy 800 lb Gorilla
Mark Shuttleworth recorded the 1st bug at the inception of ubuntu. The bug, as noted by Shuttleworth, was MicroSoft's dominance in the desktop market. Ubuntu is an outstanding success story especially in light of the spin off distros like ubuntu studio. Windows is an 800 lb gorilla dressed up as a butler. It's not "where do you want to go today"; it's where will the gorilla let you go. Ubuntu and its derivatives are fast and sleek and represent the adage, "faster nervous systems eat slower nervous systems". Ubuntu is near to jumping up and taking huge bites out of the 800 lb gorilla. I moved from 32bit Windows XP pro to 64bit Windows XP pro on a dual core 3800 Athlon and was deeply disappointed. I upgraded to Vista pro with a (Vista Windows) plus 4 rating on the hardware and was deeply, bitterly disappointed. I then came to the stark realization that all the best audio video software is FOSS based: Audacity, Gimp, VLC, and more. I've given up on Windows based boxes even for AV and go with Ubuntu and an Aspire One netbook for the cloud based stuff. Goodbye 800 lb gorilla. I should have seen it coming when playing Gorilla.BAS on Dos 3.3. A game, I've been told Bill Gates coded and notated.
