Shuttleworth: Ubuntu As Pretty As Apple In Two Years

Filed under: GNU/Linux, Linux, Shuttleworth, Ubuntu — Normand Bissonnette @ 5:05 pm

With Mark Shuttleworth’s commitment to have Ubuntu out do Apple within two years (see Information Week article, see Mark Shuttleworth blog), he proves to us that he doesn’t have cold feet.  He has decided not to thread in the kiddies pool, instead he is jumping in with both feet in the deep end.  I applaud this since I can’t tell enough people about the virtues of Ubuntu and Linux in general,  I do try though.

I hope we, the present users of Ubuntu, will be happy with the results because we have supported Ubuntu since almost the begining (In my case two years ago yesterday), we have invest so much time getting everything right on our computers while using Ubuntu.  I am sure we will be getting more Ubuntu users and we will lose some.  I guess that is the nature of the beast.



  1. Linux is already prettier: ^^
    So making an Ubuntu theme pretty shouldn’t be hard.

  2. Ubuntu’s already has a beautiful GUI once tweaked. The default orange and brown orange theme is just plain ugly IMHO. Continuity between applications would rock; Firefox doesn’t follow Gnome’s color scheme many times some GTK theme break Open Office’s toolbars, etc. Surely something exists that could tie these all together, no?
