Has anyone noticed the negative press about Ubuntu recently?
There really has been some good reviews of Ubuntu, as well as editorials, but in the past week or so there seems to have been a mini-explosion of anti-Ubuntu articles.
They seem to be coming from two groups of people:
1) the Windows supporters
2) the Linux elitists
It seems as if the Windows fans want to make Ubuntu sound like a pathetic excuse for an operating system, and the Linux fans want to make it as if Ubuntu is too dumbed down, and Linux should just stay Linux (the geeky kind) and not go mainstream.
The benefit of these articles is that it shows Ubuntu is really getting the attention of others, especially Windows writers. This goes to show now that Ubuntu has been gaining popularity, some supporters of the competition are getting nervous, and saw the opportunity to try to hurt Ubuntu’s PR.
These attempts to discredit Ubuntu have been laughable at best.
The Linux elitists are really just jealous because their particular distribution is not #1, which may sound silly since Ubuntu is a Linux distribution as well, but it happens.
Ah the fun!
