Ubuntu 2.0 (Twobuntu?!)

Filed under: Links — rakhesh @ 8:58 am

… if the most popular Linux distro has the smallest engineering team and is the least stable, it threatens the perception of the desktop distro market as a whole. Meanwhile, if Debian had 2 million new customers and 10,000 new bugs, I’ll bet they could pick up the pace for the increased workload, especially if it came with a few New Maintainer applications. §

A very interesting and critical look at Ubuntu. Heck, after reading the above line I seriously started wondering if sticking with Ubuntu was a good choice after all. For one, are they really doing much good for Debian (a distro I like loads) with all their work? And two, how much can I trust it for stability and stuff?

A good read.

  1. Glad you liked it!! Its hours of work to put these things together, but I hope there is a least a few bits of food for thought in it.

    I’ve got a few other good articles (including a very cool space elevator interview) on my website; some of the concepts are a bit repetitive, but each post is meant to stand on its own.

    The Ubuntu / Debian situation is going to get very interesting with Etch vs. Eft.
