"My last (admittedly strongly worded) article appears to have
touched quite a nerve out there in the community.
"Perhaps some readers jumped the gun when they saw the title and
didn't read the whole article, or perhaps I didn't make my point
clear. Either way, I've decided to clarify my perspective a little
(if anyone bothers to come back to read it), because I actually do
care about Linux.
"The first thing I want to clarify is that I'm not saying Ubuntu
is a bad operating system, or even a bad Linux distribution. For
ease of use for new users it remains one of the best choices
available. I'm also not even saying that Karmic is a particularly
worse release than any other. I'm also not saying that Windows is
good, nor that OS X is perfect. The reason I referred to OS X is
because that's Shuttleworth's goal for Ubuntu - to surpass it.
"I'm a Linux guy. For me, of course Linux is the best operating
system ever there was. I want it to be even better."
