    Why Ubuntu Got It All Wrong

    Unless you have been living in a cave somewhere in Redmond you would no doubt have heard of Ubuntu and its many derivatives, touted as 'Linux for human beings'.

      I would argue that one of the major advantages of Windows over Linux is a good marketing scheme and an "enigmatic, philanthropist leader". If Novell would stop playing "stealth marketing" and start acting like Gates and Shuttleworth, maybe the rest of the world would pay more attention.
