Ubuntu's Karmic Koala bares fangs at Windows 7


This is the bit I wanted to hear...

"Ubuntu also plans to offer commercial software through Software Center..."

What Linux has failed to offer so far is premium software. Adobe's CSx suite is a prime example. One of Ubuntu's core aims is to promote free software, but I firmly believe that they must open the doors to closed-source to encourage mainstream acceptance.

If they can get MS Office and iTunes available through their app store, they'll be the dominant OS.
