Open Source

What with falling for this April Fool’s piece:  http://www.windows7news.com/2011/04/01/microsoft-pull-home-pc-market-windows-8/

I started to wonder if this could mean more user uptake of Linux ditros in general. Ubuntu being a firm favourite & my daily OS of choice.

My only criticisms of Ubuntu being  minor cosmetic glitches & the the way network shares are mounted.  Currently via CLI, there being no GUI file explorer method as in Windows.  Another minor niggle; there is no facility to cross check file hashes with what is stored on the clipboard.

However, the various #buntu derivatives have come a long way & can only improve & become more refined as they are developed.
