Lately I have been blogging that I am an Ubuntu Fan and after a major crash with my Lenovo with Windows XP I left Microsoft for a combination of Ubuntu and Mac.
I use Ubuntu for e mail with Thunderbird and regular Open Office for regular tasks related to the management of Fon. On the other hand, I use Mac for music, videos, pictures and entertainment in general. While most people know Mac few know Ubuntu. Ubuntu is best described as a very simple and stable Linux based operating system. It´s Linux for the rest of us. Ubuntu is for people like me who love technology but are not engineers.
Interestingly I just got an e mail from Michael Dell in which he says he also uses Ubuntu. As the link shows he went as far as to say so in his official bio in the Dell web site. Now if Dell, the corporation goes the way of Michael Dell, the CEO the Ubuntu distro will rise from relative obscurity to the big league of Vista, Windows XP and MacOSX. Fans of Ubuntu should watch this opportunity carefully Michael Dell may be coming your way just as the new Ubuntu is about to be released.
