SJVN quotes Google. It’s a great line and it’s the truth. As much as naysayers condemn GNU/Linux on the desktop, it sure beats the alternatives every way imaginable:
- flexibility (licence, installation and configuration),
- performance, and
Google made some poor decisions IMHO with Android/Linux but they chose Ubuntu GNU/Linux because of its package manager, APT, and Canonical’s “cadence” which suits Google’s upgrade cycle of two years. I guess they haven’t heard of thin clients… Oh, well. Google can afford to disagree with me. They also pay Canonical for support.
