That's a bit harsh. If you said Android = Windows, I'd agree. Both have a penchant for slowing down over time and a reputation of contracting all sorts of bad jujuware. Ubuntu, on the other hand, I've never had major problems with. Sure, it's heavier than your average distro and they've made some rather confounding choices (like that Amazon lens thing), but I've never had any Ubuntu app ask if I want to install a "special toolbar" in my browser.

@gutterslob:  I think the comment was in reference to some of the things Canonical has done in an effort to generate additional revenue.  On another note, I recently read that the Ubuntu devs are considering offering a version of Ubuntu in the future that doesn't use Debs.

Really? We have two major mature package management systems (rpm, dpkg) and some smaller but well-functioning (pacman, ...). Integrating the one with the other has always been a PITA. And now Canonical will come with their own ypm (Yet another Package Manager)? I just hope they do not re-invent the wheel again (Mir, anybody?) - I'm going to cheer for them though should they adopt nix!

@twoion:  I'll try to find the link and post back here with it.  It's an interesting read.

Here you go:  Is Ubuntu Moving Away from .debs?

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

RE Snappy - found here:

Will it confuse users?

Not really. Canonical will be offering two editions of Ubuntu: one based on the traditional .deb-based desktop and the other based on Snappy.

Canonical will offer a traditional 16.04 Debian package edition and a Snappy desktop so users can choose whichever version they want. Since 16.04 will be LTS it will be critical for Canonical to not ‘touch’ the users who want to use the traditional desktop and at the same time offer an LTS release of Snappy to those who want to climb up the evolutionary ladder.

So those users who want the traditional desktop will be able to download it. And those who want security benefits and a much smoother, Android-like upgrade experience can migrate to the Snappy-based image.

Snappy users will also get more frequent updates to their applications, rather than waiting 6 months for the next Ubuntu release.

That's now but in the future?  I guess we'll all be 'plugged-in and tuned in/on'
