[vox] [fwd] LXer: Ubuntu Linux Desktop Reviewed

Subject: [school-discuss] LXer: Ubuntu Linux Desktop Reviewed


Ubuntu Linux has an interesting story to tell. You may find this article helpful in understanding this Linux phenomenon.

The founder once paid $20 million and trained for a year to go into space. He was a debian developer in the early 1990's, started Thawte in 1995 and sold it four years later for one half a billion.

After launching Ubuntu, the company shipped its 1 millionth CD within six months.

Many people ask if this is another Linspire and the answer is definitely no.

This is a mature Linux desktop, it's free, they'll ship you as many CD's as you want for free and there's no catch.

I hope you enjoy this story. It's Linux for Humane beings.
