Andrew Woodhead: Great starter distro (as it aims to be). Runs well. Im a bit biased as an
Ubuntu member -ActionParsnip
digitaldown: ubuntu is ok, but it comes with it's own set of problems. don't think it's
any better than windows. but it depends on what you're doing. sometimes
windows is better. sometimes ubuntu is better.
historatia: @zederish Not particularly 'creative' only somebody who has experience fro
the RT-11 days of DEC computers through to Unix/Solaris HP/UX corporatately
and with Ti 99-4A, Amiga 2500 as Hobby stuff. Tried DOS and Windows
occasionally, now readying TI-OMAP with Pandaboard for corporate appliance
use as well as future low power desktop. The comment was elicited because
the "depth" of knowledge on this vid is abysmal. The judgments are born of
ignorance and the comments are mostly misinformation.
AndrewDeLong: Well, I dual boot Ubuntu and Win 7 on my laptop. Whenever I have an issue
with Windows (say, a corrupt file just shuts down my system), I boot up
Ubuntu, and it friggin auto fixes the file (in Windows) before it does
anything else. I use Windows for Media based tasks, and torrenting (it's
hella easier to torrent on Windows). I use Ubuntu for virus free web
browsing....basically, there is no porn I cannot watch, as there are VERY
FEW viruses that can even come close to affecting Ubuntu.
xyz98741: I freaking own this Iamthefag loser for laugh. I made him revamp his entire
channel from the severe and unending ownage that I have been inflicting on
this retarded loser
Fabian Leiva Sierra: O.k I'm a huge hater of "not-opensource" companies... But for me Ubuntu
10.10 have been only a headache. First of all, I installed it on my PC, I
wanted to have Win XP and Ubuntu, I follow all the steps of an official
video about how to install it, and guess what?? I freaking lost my Win XP I
can't install nearly everything, I mean 7 steps just for install a freaking
program?? and I need other programs that require another 7 steps to install
them?? Damn, I was simply dissapointed with Ubuntu
Morris West: @LauxHawk Not really ,because what you were talking about are people that
are hard up about running commercial Windows software on Linux , and if
they want to do that they were already willing to pay, or pirate the
software ... It just give those people a new option. and VirtualBox is free
BTW ;) AC3D is another commercial 3D software for Linux... I personally
like "humble indie bundle" approach to commercial game. they let people pay
what they wanted and still made $1,273,613
Xaahu Yazeed: And without electricity none of this will exist :P
86touge: ubuntu is freaking amazing
DantheManBooyah: I tried Linux Mint but got kicked off of their community. freaking
TheCompGame: i was looking at his screen saver the whole time lol
Xaahu Yazeed: yes i agree. ubuntu does heat up mine too. mint is more like a polished
ubuntu but people prefer ubuntu cuz its very simple and laid out and now
unity is getting amazing and not as annoying and lame as it was in 11.04
and 11.10. 12.04 will be the best linux distro. count on it.
muzzigametrailers: @nuobus wtf have you smoked?
Fabian Leiva Sierra: @XxFaKyouxX Another thing... My PC is builded for playing games, and guess
what?? Linux has no freaking compatibility with any games, at least you have
WIne HQ, and you have to do at least 6 steps to install them and know how
the programs works... OK Uubntu doesn't have virus, and you have to buy a
antivirus for windows... Jus download an antivrius from the internet, and
the cops won't come to your house to arrest you.
Mastermind12358: my god this guy is stupid
lakay2010: I recently switched to Ubuntu after using Windows for over 10 years. It's a
burkawitch: just installed it and it looks nice.... more glamorous than windows thats
for sure lol
urah2525: Chris - Watching you on Ubuntu11.04. Computer was Win 7 dual boot 'til W 7
crashed, restore discs got lost and Ubuntu still runs like a Train. -S-
Darkteammadfiz: There is better distros than Ubuntu, but that's my opinion.
Alyx Vance: this guy is such a Dusche
Chintendoeddman: Linux > OS X > Windows
Tununias: Technically nobody uses Windows, Linux, or Macintosh. They use programs and
programs use the operating system. Unless you use the terminal that might
be considered using the operating system sense an operating system consists
of a kernel and a shell. (I might not be 100% accurate about this though)
CrewRite: @Mantua64 Legally OSX can only run on Mac, so there's no chance at all.
I've tried OSX, it lacks alot of things, that Windows and Linux have.
yanike: @Reallush you know you can use Adobe CS5 Photoshop on Ubuntu using Wine. I
use it now on Ubuntu 11.10 when I need some extra features that GIMP
Fabian Leiva Sierra: I'm using UBUNTU 10.10 right now because my Win XP freaked up installing
Ubuntu. I had great expectations about UBUNTU an OPEN SOURCE OS (OMFG
REALLY COOL ISNT IT??) I read a lot of comments on the internet "UBUNTU
freakING ROCKS, JUST HAVING AN ORGASM WITH IT" But all my expectation went
to the trash, or at least the recycle bin, because I'm trying to install XP
again, but I have to admit it, UBUNTU IS REALLY FAST AND COMFORTABLE FOR
WORK If you want to have UBUNTU, have WIN in another HaDis
CrewRite: Linux could run on DVR, DVD and VCR menus, try doing that with Windows.
Linux is a universal tool, that Windows will never be.
spirit469: Linux Mint. :D
cgpilk: @bhigr I'd love to see that happen, but users are locked in to Windows.
Most new computers come with Windows installed, most people think this is
what they want. People are blind. My mum, my dad, my wife, my friends,
everyone uses Windows. I've love to see this change. HP is apparently
putting Linux on desktops and servers this year, WebOS or something (Just
what we need, *another* distribution, they obviously haven't heard of
Ubuntu), hopefully this doesn't end up like Ubuntu on Dells.
newbodymind: game on linux with wine no need for cedega or crossover and popular prog
like rosetta stone and photoshop also work some game don`t but alot do you
will find most needed ones work well i could not get xna to work so i still
use windows on my desktop but dual boot it with mint and have ubuntu on 5
year old laptop multitasking like crazy really have you ever noticed how
windows extracts zipped files slowly try that on linux you will be amazed
by the speed
heaheaheaa: lol my mom is goin to by us an abunta this week im so excited,
yanike: @webDes33 Ubuntu is derived from Debian Linux. No their Linux is not the
same as the others. It's like saying Mac OS X is the same as FreeBSD,
because they referenced off of it. Ubuntu's development team has done a
great job at making Ubuntu it's own OS and it's definitely my default now.
Ubuntu to me is more professional than any other Linux available. It's
definitely the only ProAm Linux out that competes against Windows and Mac
OS X. I'm developing premium C++ software for it now using Qt :)
spinmonkey: i man i have to ask if i were to use and make ubuntu and make it into
somthing new and kick ass if would i be able to make money on it and
license it and make it maybe on par with windows or somthing like that
would i able to make money on it ? ? would you be able to tell me if it is
possible or not if any one is able to help
Michael Porter: @MsPwain A few years ago I would have agreed with that. These days though
it seems people do want Linux to be more and more "user friendly". We can
see this in the distro releases these days. They're all becoming easier and
easier and even easier to the point where they're beginning to hold users
hands, it seems.
CrewRite: As for those 30,000+ downloads. Linux is able to do a custom disc. So,
those 30,000+ downloads are pre-installed. You pay nothing. All you pay for
is the Blank Discs.
Tim Weinitz: @RJTamm93 same as for me. I didn't like it before but 10.10 is awesome
newbodymind: ge about it that as me at first i`d install linux but as soon as i had a
problem would run back to windows but as your knowledge start to grow so
does your want to make programs work for you like they should and the os is
just as prog and you should be able to make it do what you want windows by
it`s nature does not trust the user and shackles them expecting the user
not to be anything more than a five year old child linux boxes can be
broken easily by inexperienced users but
Garuda: 2. Linux, or Open Source is going at an extremely stable growth pace. This
pace is not being matched by either windows or mac. Windows share is
reducing slowly and that share is being eaten by Mac, then again Mac, with
its Lion OS cannot go any further. But on the other hand Ubuntu surpassed
itself with 11.04!
newbodymind: @josephseven i`ve found that ram plays alot into the speedof newer versions
of ubuntu on older hardware user a older version of ubuntu or use windows
98 still the best os ms ever had or upgrade the ram on 1 gb of ram i`ve
found newer versions of ubuntu run their best when not using swap file as i
do not use one and if you have it installed to external hdd a recommend at
least 1 gb as external is usually slower now if your having trouble with
flash join the club
the747videoer: freakING ADS, THEY DIDN'T LET ME WATCH IT
RJTamm93: @historatia Thats where I prefer it :)
Hasan Mohammad: Kubuntu has a better user interface
newbodymind: @ViaNocturna85 totally agree
Nick Dellorto: I think that if you don't care about gaming THAT much, then Ubuntu is my #1
choice for Linux. Fast, simple, awesome looking, I'm using it right now.
Sure it's the easiest but still, would you want EVERYTHING to be command
Tim Weinitz: @CrewRite I installed Ubuntu from an old mp3 player that my mom found at
the library XD
LauxHawk: @phantomhacker90 Okay silly people. Wine doesn't run all Windows programs.
Not even close to all. It's not perfect. It's trying to emulate an
operating system without actually having that operating system. I'd say it
works flawlessly with 40% of all Windows programs and that's being generous.
LauxHawk: @CrewRite Oh never mind, from a professional business standpoint, you can't
just use Ubuntu. There are quite a lot of OLD Win2K, WinXP ONLY programs
that corporations are still using. And these are programs that can't even
run on Vista or 7 and you think they are going to run in Wine? It's not
going to happen. Maybe if your business only uses Office, sure! But a lot
of business use some sloppy old software that they wouldn't dare change.
Whether it is a business or school, change is not welcome.
theomoto1: People calm down. I have a mac and a PC. Having a PC, the solution: Dual
booting with partitions. Every is its best at a certain aspect. Using
Ubuntu u hate then the windows and OSX, using OSX u hate windows and Ubuntu
and so on. None of them is perfect.
Apatthetic Man: 7 was what Vista should have been. 8, how can you improve that mess?
hakimsheriff: UBUNTU IS WAAAAYYY BETTER THAN ANY OTHER OPERATING
Xaahu Yazeed: I think its the best OS ever.
