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.
