I decided to post a topic on the constant conversation going around about the new styles of Desktop/Tablet operating systems. Mostly I hear the same negative comments and to be perfectly honest that really baffles me yet it does not surprise me at all.
Isn't it always the most innovative discoveries get completely degraded and put to shame when before-to-long, something like 5 years down the road, everyone is using these earlier prototypes of creation that have just been fine-tuned and gotten upgraded to be more user friendly? Just think about it. You can literally look back decade-by-decade, and list realistic examples from inventions that everyone in society gave negative opinions about, and now today we all live by this remarkable technology: electricity, telephones, television, computers??? Hello, before the desktop PC the Military laughed when the idea of personal computers was ever brought up into conversation. They literally believed there would be no need for anymore than 3 computers EVER!! Google it.
And this begins my argument for the new Ubuntu, as well as Windows 8, desktop/tablet computers!
How could anyone not see the potential in this subsequential approach?!? No, we're so technically advanced, geek-brained, demigods that when something actually 'NEW' hits the scene, oh no, no, no!! We're not used to this! Blasphemy! Where is my START button, or why do we have this docking station! Yuck... Sigh,... nerds. Nerds, open your ears!!
Open your eyes. Can you not see the potential for the fantasy and science fiction dramas you have been dreaming about your whole life coming to your very own finger tips??? Why don't you see Star Trek, Star Wars, Stasgate Atlantis, Deep Space 9, Close Encounters...etc, all rolled up into a new operating system! And GOD bless Canonical !@#$ Those genius beautiful Linux innovators. Can you imagine what would have happen if Windows 8 had been a huge market success? Where does that leave our loving Linux prospectives? When everyone begins using Windows on there PC/tablets where will we be left still clicking away hopelessly looking afar at Microsoft's balls of steal to actually put their necks out there one day to leave us graveling in the dust?
What I mean by this is even though Windows 8 WAS NOT a huge market success upon the initial launch Canonical gets it. When everyone finally 'catches on', and sees, Wow, actually now that touch screen LED monitors can also interact with touch screen abilities as well as use mouse power, AND when they are made as this thin as glass, AND we can add multiple monitors to our desks while touching and having desktop PC power....? This doesn't remind you of Tony Stark??
Could you imagine if they finally came up with see-through monitors so you could literally reach your hand into a monitor and grab invisible 3D objects and carelessly throw them around? Nobody else sees this except for Microsoft? With all the Linux leaders of the PC nation, really? Well Canonical saw it and luckily they jumped right on. One of the BEST well received Linux distros decided, Well, its either us or living in the past... Even though they have not been received well, even bumped down to 2nd place on the DistorWatch. Lol, like thats going to matter in the next 5 years. Even if Ubuntu gets bumped down to LAST place, just mark my words, and watch. Watch how all of a sudden they come up with the most amazing monitor set ups and EVERYONE wants one... The only operating system that works on it is Windows 8.1? Excuse my French, but F dat* Thank you Ubuntu for stepping up to the plate, on all of our toes, and into the future. If it weren't for you I would actually be a little concerned with the technological field. Just look at Intel.
They began to implement UEFI specifications in their motherboards and Linux users haaaate UEFI... Um, have you ever taken a look at the UEFI documentation? Its GENIUS. There are so many major new benefits to using UEFI to replace the Legacy BIOS that why wouldn't ANYONE not agree to upgrade their motherboard chips? Well, luckily Canonical joined in on that specification as well. Ahh, phew seriously, you Linux penguin people have me worried with your, This is not what were used to and/or like!! How did Linux even come about? Not by having a closed mind. Research, experiment, branch out from old ways. I know how Linux can set you in on this mind frame. The kernel can run on 512MB of RAM, 2-5GB HDD, my video card from 1992 and a potato power supply, and we dont like modifying that unless we have them gooder pataters, BUUUT, come on Linux buddies. Theres more to life than a good southern smashed taters. Ok, Ok, now this is just getting ridiculous.
Anyways, Im just trying light-heartedly make the point that being a part of all the new advancements of computers, and having the convenience, speed, power, etc of inventions is all about allowing the newest ideas that you can manage to give a minute of potential credit to attempt a place of modern advancements. Get with the program. Technology isnt going to stop, slow down, or stay in one place. Having a 3D touch screen computer that I can also use as a power system, while also having a kick ass Linux OS sounds like a dream come true for me, and I'm not even that up-to-date with full control of using Linux. I barely can handle basic CLI control. But I take it slow to learn it correctly and I have come a long way mostly on my own. A self taught enthusiast as most of us begin. Nothing wrong with pointing out the obvious.
