Ubuntu & Leopard
As a Gentoo user, all my Gentoo / XPTO OS comparison will always be biased, so I will refrain from that… still…
Ubuntu impresses… Leopard disappoints.
A dry sentence like this might cause panic and cardiac arrests to some so let me try to find an excuse on why I might be feeling this. For long I have been using Linux and I had never tried Ubuntu and I never thought they could make a Linux installation so simple and user-friendly, I never thought they could design such nice buttons, backgrounds, etc. I was really impressed with the overall feeling… On the other hand, for years, I have been fed by promises that Apple will save the world from 3rd world OSes and “find the cure for cancer”, if you know what I mean… However, I am using Leopard… the champion, the OS ruler, the king of good design, the elite of simplicity… and I just feel the need to cry!
