Here’s an Open letter from DeviceGuru to Ubuntu Linux project founder Mark Shuttleworth:
So, for example, you might end up with something along the lines of:
- Ubuntu GNOME Edition (aka “Ubuntu”)
- Ubuntu KDE Edition
- Ubuntu Xfce Edition
- Ubuntu Educational Edition
- Ubuntu Server Edition (as is)
I think it’s critical to focus as much attention as possible on a single brand, Ubuntu, to maximize its adoption and success. Given the already fragmented nature of Linux, why fragment a specific distribution unnecessarily?
It’d be great if I could finally be a Ubuntu user! I can’t help it, I just happen to prefer KDE over GNOME 😉 But I’d feel more part of the Ubuntu community if the OS I run on the Black Tower was called Ubuntu.
