I tweeted (twittered? Will I never know?) a link to this article on how to run Ubuntu on a mac.
Within moments I got a direct tweet back from a former colleague who is a UX/Design person:
Seriously with OSx as good as it is… Why would anyone do this? I don’t get it.
Why run Ubuntu on a mac?
The article I linked to provides some suggestions but here are a few of my own:
- Because a basic Ubuntu install lets you do shed loads more than a basic Mac install. Ubuntu is not just an OS; it is a Linux distribution that comes with an enormous amount of free to share and use software.
- Because we would like to invite you to our party. Ubuntu is there for everyone to use. No exceptions.
- Because you want to help us make it better?
How about that for a start?
