    Thanks, Mark! I stumbled upon this site some time ago, but forgot to bookmark it. Just couldn’t find it again. :( Some days ago I wondered if I’d ever find it again… And here you are! :D

    [...] Mark Shuttleworth na swoim blogu zamieścił link do strony, która porusza dość ciekawy temat jakim jest stwierdzenie “Dlaczego Linux jest lepszy“. Autor strony podaje bardzo dużo argumentów za podtwierdzeniem tej tezy jak chociażby takie ( w wolnym tłumaczeniu ): [...]

    This is a great site, but the “stable/unstable” deal is no good.

    Im using ubuntu for some months. Ive found the the X interface is unstable. I have crashes most on firefox that were more stable on windows. I also have crashes on other softwares and with gnome.
    Also there are a lot of bugs on ubuntu (and linux). Most of them on the X interface and on the softwares.

    Everytime I say this there is a lot of people saying that I do FUD or similar stuff, but this is the true

    I love linux, but there is a long way until we get to the masses

    Hi Mark,

    There is another website that also provides great “easy to read” and very well supported information. They are available in English, Spanish (Castillian and Catalan) and French for now:

    Cheers,

    Ha ha! Yeah, I found that one as well. StumbleUpon is kick ass! Never thought pressing a button could be so addictive.

    Big ups for starting Ubuntu!

    emerging disruptive” technologies & sites are cool/wicked…
    or whatever the latest tag for “awesome” is

    I also like these sexy web 2.0 companies/site , of which Stumble is one:

    http://www.go2web20.net/

    I didn’t see uBuntu on there – tho I suppose you’re an OS – not a “2.0 site”.

    you know about these guys probably ?
    http://gettingreal.37signals.com/
    & their get real philosophy.

    would like to see more of this simplicity pervading software solutions, where possible.
    Get some elegance into the equation.

    Lose the blah-blah wada-wada tech-noise that
    has been introduced with gawky Windows programming etc.

    The software equivalent of a google search page…
    no flashing adverts,
    no irrelevant content screaming for your attention…
    eye-pleasing white-page ethos..

    Borrow Occam’s razor…
    lex parsimoniae etc

    Simple. Workable. Useable.

    Hat’s off to you and what you do to promote South Africa and the continent as a whole. However, having the same name as you does have both advanatges and disadvantages, especially since we are of a similar age group. From one entrepenuer to another, carry on the great work!
