Ubuntu 11.04 and Unity – how Mark defends the change
I have always loved how Ubuntu keeps growing and even when the decision to remove GIMP from mainstream release and make it available as part of synaptic manager, there were outcries. But in this article, Mark has rightly defended why Ubuntu remains strong and how we should embrace change even if it means borrowing heavily from other successful OSes. Being successful does not necessarily mean to provide something which is not available elsewhere, rather it is about giving something so good, so simple and so perfect that you are the best at it.
In my humble opinion, Ubuntu has taken the first step towards it by providing an integrated experience across various hardware, be it a netbook or a desktop. The next step is to provide the best of all worlds and bring all the other OS enthusiasts into our beloved Ubuntu.
