1- Small download sizeTo what do you attribute Ubuntu's success?
2- lots of publicity
3- Mailing a free installation cd
4- The huge package list
5- Livecd, including fairly easy install
6- Now that it has a huge user's community it is still easier to graw faster and faster.
Now that Ubuntu has a desl with freespire/linspire to use CNR, they might end-up eating most of that 3-5% o/s desktop share that linux has. It will kill other linux distros before it eats into windows market share. Vista is like winxp when it was released, it's on a relatively slow start till driveers and more software is ready for it. To eat into windows market share, there will be a need for a few killer applications.Where do you think Ubuntu is heading in the next year?
No I don't, I tried lts and edgy and none of them stayed installed more than 2 days. I've been a Slackware and Redhat/Fedora user for more than 10 years, and I intend to keep using these distros.Do you use Ubuntu, why or why not?
