"When Ubuntu started itâ€™s
â€œmarch to gloryâ€ there were three
â€œbigâ€ distributions, SuSE,
Mandriva, and Fedora. Debian and Slackware were popular but were
not very appealling to newbies (Debian still had a text based
installerâ€¦). All of the
â€œbig threeâ€ were not at their best
when Ubuntu came out and started gathering users."
