Calum, that is a big +1

I hope we get to that point of awareness. ATM, I strive to convert people for free.

Let me just chip in that I've contributed a lot of work to Ubuntu... and I don't consider myself betrayed at all. It's a symbiosis, I believe. And... I believe we're on the better side of the deal.

WHOA!
Since when does sudo give you root access without asking for a password?

Ubuntu has billboards in California... or at least one :)

We are striving to create a unified Marketing front for Ubuntu. Trust me, it's not an easy job, and everyone has a different idea of how to get it done.

How is the most popular linux distro out there an... underdog? JoeDude - a very stylish thing to do is stick Ubuntu case badges on computers of your victims. I underwent a little project of printing a batch of 1000 stickers to send out to the world (free only in CZ) for a small fee. If you're intere...

Haha :-D

Yeah, umm... I didn't get it either, so I rather held my mouth shut in order not to look ignorant.

I admit not to have read the article, but from what I know - Mark has been dumping about $10 M a year from his own pocket into ubuntu every year. Now if Ubuntu is to turn into a money making project for him, and it really makes it up... respect, man. But honestly, does it sound probable? And would i...

Oh that's a sure thing. It's because of the well organised, coordinated, powerful marketing Ubuntu has. Only the precise and well thought-through actions of the Ubuntu Marketing Team allow the distribution to proliferate to uncounted masses of now-dedicated users, only the dead-effective techniques ...

A bunch of forum moderators were 'liberated' recently. I find it an interesting coincidence that they seem to be the ones who backed up automatix so vigorously in the past. Please don't dig into the subject too deep, though, it can be touchy (/me hopes none of those are reading this ツ) A side effe...

I 'urgh' at automatix :( It has caused a lot, lot of irreparible damage. Supposedly it has improved a lot since then, but those who have read the code say it's still a quick and bad hack. In fact, if any local gurus would care to have a look at it and review it from a technical point of view, it wou...

Well... why do I like Linux?

Lemme think. I like Linux because it's the right thing to do. We are at the very beginning of the information era. We're in what the Kingdom was to Rome, what Dante was to Renaissance and what Athens were to democracy. Imagine if we start out with a privately owned, closed protocol internet... imagi...
