Why Ubuntu isn't for New Linux Users
Devnet writes "I was getting a bit tired of saying the same things over and over to friends on the net. I was getting tired of repetitiously posting in forums the same sentiment over and over. Yet, just like getting a second wind in a long and tiring race...my tiredness melts away and I find myself feeling refreshed and anew. What the subject of this rant has to say and what I have to say in the paragraphs below are NOT written to start a flame war. I am a user of Ubuntu and a strong supporter of all Debian based distros. Nay, this article is written to allow insight into where I believe Linux needs to go to succeed. I'm not out to win any popularity contests...I'm not out to garner a bunch of page hits to generate ad revenue (no ads on the page). I'm just out to help the Linux community and rant a bit when I find a subject that strikes a nerve. The subject at hand is Why Ubuntu is NOT New Linux Users."
