    Ubuntu is yours!

    This is a rant about how great it is to have this freedom, nothing more.


    I've been following all these posts about distros, suggestions, what should we do etc I finally realized that most don't know that the deal is that it is free as in speech.

    IT IS YOUR OPERATING SYSTEM.

    Do whatever you want with it, whenever you want with it.

    Blows my mind sometimes

    Re: Ubuntu is yours!

    After the initial installation I add about 200Mb worth of extra packages, and spent about half an hour setting things up the way I like, then I just use it.

    I use wallpaper-tray to change backgrounds every fifteen minutes, delete the lower panel and use gnome-do docky. I use the DarkSuit Theme with Breathe Icons and I end up with something like the screenshot.

    Ok explanation, Ubuntu, open source Linux in general is just an amazing thing, and I don't think it will ever stop.


    Billion dollar industries(you know who they are) are struggling to do what the open source community is doing right now, and these industries aren't doing it as well either.

    I use Ubuntu, I use Mandriva, I use Debian, I use openSUSE... I use them all on one or one million computers, whenever I like for whatever I like... I use GNOME when I want, and I use KDE when I want... Nothing tastes so sweet as freedom indeed
