I know that it might not seem like it at times, but I’m a big Ubuntu fan. I haven’t fully figured out how and where it fits into my computing ecosystem yet, but I know that it does have a place there. One aspect of Ubuntu that particularly impresses me is the clear development time-line that is published and adhered to. You always know what’s coming and when to expect it.
I like surprises, but I much prefer it when they are confined to Christmas and my birthday. When it comes to trying to make the right technology choices, surprises aren’t so good because they create too much uncertainty and doubt.
