Today my Ubuntu install has been removed. I seem to have been too long in this fluffy, overly pampered, safe environment.
Ubuntu is a marketing product, its owner is incredibly rich and after reading this I suddenly woke up.
Specially the quote “Ubuntu is the New Debian.” was an eye-opener for me.
Also the Canonical and Linspire Announce Technology Partnership news made me doubt.
The install of Debian Etch took me about one hour and managed to set up the needed drivers and beryl without too many problems.
The difference between Debian and Ubuntu is, except for losing the addictive bleeding edge candy store, a priceless feeling of having shaken off the Ubuntu marketing machine.
Free at last!
