'[OT] [LINUX] Ubuntu in the news'

I like Ubuntu Linux because it works right out of the box. It is small
(One CD to start) and big (lots of supported packages).

Ubuntu carves niche in Linux landscape

http://news.com.com/Ubuntu+carves+niche+in+Linux+landscape/2100-7344_3-5886194.html

News.context

What's new:
Launched less than two years ago, the Ubuntu project, an offshoot of the Debian
operating system, has managed to build a new version of Linux and establish a
following.

Bottom line:
Ubuntu has attracted programmers and users at a time when Linux powerhouses
are trying hard to build their own involved communities. Ubuntu has
drawn praise,
but some in the Debian arena object to some of the project's choices.

I can understand why many people like it but there is room to improve.. For
example, the development packages are not installed.. So, they need to be
installed before building anything from source.. But I guess most people who
use Ubuntu will not be building much from source..

cheers..

But it is very easy to install packages using apt-get or synaptic.

But be careful of any kernel update!

Next version of Ubuntu is just 2 weeks away. One very good
thing about Ubuntu is that it is really free! You can get the
CD shipped to your place for free. I have not tried this though since
broadband download is faster.

       Would it run on a 512MB Pen-Drive?

I do not know. Ubuntu is a full-fledge distribution
and I want to give it more space than 10GB.

I think there are special distributions for those
kind of things. My experience tells me in order to
go really into Linux, one needs to give it the same
space as Windows and spends the same time on
both system.
