Jeremy Zawodny and Ubuntu Linux on his Thinkpad T43p
August 8, 2006 1 Comment
Jeremy Zawodny just tried Ubuntu 6.06 on a recently purchased Thinkpad T43p. His thoughts? WOW! A quote:
Given all that, I'm shocked and amazed. It works. It just works.
I think this is a very good sign that desktop Linux is well on its way. It's not there yet, but we've crossed an important barrier. I see Jeremy and users like him as the next wave of Linux adopters. They're technically savvy and have tried Linux before, only to give up for various reasons. For the most part, those “various reasons” are almost completely a thing of the past. That's significant. I've heard good things about SLED (Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop) as well. One of these days I'll have to try Ubuntu and SLED to see what I'm missing out on. In the meantime, it's encouraging to see users like Jeremy coming back to Linux and liking it.
