View Full Version : Register says Ubuntu goes mainstream

August 3rd, 2006, 07:44 PM
Our friends at the UK’s premier third-rate IT blog, The Register, have a new interview up with Benevolent Dictator Mark Shuttleworth (http://ubuntuforums.org//www.theregister.co.uk/2006/07/25/ubuntu_goes_mainstream/) branding him a “millionaire cosmonaut and self-funded Linux guru” and talking about taking Ubuntu to the mainstream.
Mark reveals that Canonical is using about $10m/year on building and promoting Ubuntu, all currently coming from Mark’s personal wallet. We thought we’d also take the Google Trends link that measures the number of searches on a particular topic and compare Ubuntu to Red Hat, Suse and even Microsoft’s Vista. We think you’ll enjoy the results! (http://ubuntuforums.org//www.google.com/trends?q=vista,red+hat,ubuntu,suse)

You should check those links. What I get with Opera is a http://ubuntuforums.org// prefix.
