Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"When I switched on my new computer, Ubuntu asked me some data,
as in any normal installation, but then I discovered the famous
Dell desktop, which is like a kind of virus. It is ugly and
impractical. In addition, the selection of packages made by Dell
seems strange (lots of KDE stuff in a Gnome based system).
Furthermore, Firefox showed the Yahoo! toolbar. This is ugly. This
computer contained an Ubuntu full of shit (call a spade a spade),
so I decided to remove that version and change it to an ordinary
Ubuntu. After all, having a 12" screen, I do not need to have a
distribution of Linux for netbooks because, despite having a
netbook processor (Intel Atom), this computer is the size of a
small standard laptop (lpia aside)."
