Anyone running #Ubuntu that is curious about #Debian #Stretch, I'll let you know how this #Linux #Distro to other Linux distro update goes... Oh, and if you have suggestions for extra steps to take, send them my way. I won't be doing her computer until all of the others are finished, so I'll check in here before I start.


The #Arch Wiki is really something. While #Ubuntu largely relies on the launchpad bug tracker and Ask Ubuntu stackoverflow system. I think this says something about the two cultures.

I think I'll take the plunge tonight and install #ZSH.

Volunteers tailor Ubuntu Linux to UK’s health service

A group of British IT health care specialists have tailored the #Ubuntu #Linux distribution for use by the UK’s national health service #NHS on its workstations. The alpha version of #NHSbuntu was unveiled at the South West CIO Forum on 27 April.

@vfrmedia @danie10 I think it is a good effort to prepare free software to run in places like #NHS.

Having reviewed the presentation I am not sure what is so special in #NHSbuntu that makes it different from other operating systems based on free software. Full disk encryption by default is not rocket science those days.

They also mention dependency and upgrade hell. My understanding that when upgrading #Ubuntu major releases one does that by virtually reinstalling everything.

@d3jblog I think #shuttleworth's plan at the end is: selling #Ubuntu (shares) to some mega corporation like !Microsoft.
I find #Android's candy names to be as unhelpful as #Ubuntu's "Allopecious Alligator" names.

@bob Does he need to have a commitment to free software? I am happy for every business model that helps creating free software and is profitable.
But I stopped using #ubuntu a while ago because of their GUI decisions.

I'm restarting my search for an #Ubuntu certified laptop. Retailers in #Thailand a bit shaky on this. I'm going to go to the dell store with the list on certified laptops on my phone

@moonman WOULD NOT DO AGAIN.  Blinking cursor / unbootable system FTW #ubuntu #weyland #gnome
