    Re: Sad day...

    The point about never really leaving Linux is a good one. I'm running Ubuntu on all my servers, Ubuntu/KVM for server virtualization, Linux on my Android phone, Ubuntu for my media center, etc. ...

    Re: Back to Windows

    I totally agree with this. Maybe I was just lucky, but other than a fakeraid I struggled with once, I haven't had a driver problem with Ubuntu since 12.04. Sleep & hibernate rarely worked, but...

    LOL -- Don't think I haven't had that same thought!!!

    Re: Enough with the mobile stuff...

    I value Linux a lot, and will stick with Ubuntu Server for many years to come. But in my case, I don't want a "Linux" desktop....I want a "Great" desktop and IMO Canonical/Ubuntu is the only way...

    Re: Enough with the mobile stuff...

    Mostly certainly am here but only for these reasons:

    1) Ubuntu desktop blows away Windows XP
    2) Ubuntu desktop is better than Windows 7 in some important ways

    ok - this kind of stuff gives me some hope. I guess I didn't realize that there was this overlap between the mobile and desktop versions of Ubuntu. If you are saying that once the convergence is...

    Microsoft, like many larger corporations, has figured out that some (maybe most) acquisitions work best when they are left alone. They've largely left Skype alone, and apparently the people who run...
