- Are you CEO Cody, that you make statements like that ? A CEO doesn't care about being taken seriously ;) Certainly not other CEOs who either have some form of Windows or a Mac. Most CEOs don't have Linux on their laptops unfortunately and comments like that remind me of 'fanboyism'... :o)Jul 28, 2012
- Yeah, fanboyism.. Did you not read the rest of my comment? I said I use ubuntu. I dont favor any linux distro. I like linux in general. Funny you say that, but all youve been doing is arguing "ubuntu's" superiority. pretty ironic. And how I does my stance remind you of fanboyism? Did i claim favorism for anything? did I not state I use both? Did I not state I have ubuntu on my laptop right now? Fanboyism would be claiming Red Hat is the best and no one should use any other distro or operating system because red hat is the greatest thing in the world, and I get the new version every time it comes out and I follow all their feeds, and I just love them and love them and love them. I said none of that. I merely stated what they both themselves state, what they were intended for.
And nice debating by taking it to a childish level of stating im a fanboy.
Good job, you got through with that one, it really backs up your argument. Really all it does it make you look silly as all youve been doing is talking how ubuntu is the greatest, and it should be everyones choice..
And yeah seriously, a CEO using ubuntu is a joke. Imagine walking into your meeting and whipping out your laptop with your spinning ubuntu logo boot screen, greeted with your cheesy included software. Just saying its not intended for that environment out of the box, and if you take a media laptop to a sensitive work environment, why would you be taken seriously?
So whatever, im done. Since you cant have a freindly debate and act mature without having taken it to a childish level of "fanboyism statements." obviously don't understand debate, and continue to change the subject arguing something completely irrelevant.
If you want ubuntu on your laptop. Go ahead. Congrats. Your not going to change my stance on the subject, by talking about your own personal needs, and situations, and comparing it with something in a completely different situation.
And I am not trying to change anyones mind either. The whole point was me stating Red hat was intended for enterprise, ubuntu is intended for media/home. Dont think so? Contact Canonical
and red hat, ask both of them what their products are intended for.Jul 28, 2012
- Comments like this, "And Id like to see a CEO use Ubuntu as his main OS and get taken seriously.", sound like fanboyism.
If you wanted discussion you wouldn't use comments like that and this "... whipping out your laptop with your spinning ubuntu logo boot screen, greeted with your cheesy included software", with all those negative words, but rather hard facts.
Regarding, media laptops that is exactly why a CEO would use a media friendly Linux distro. For their 'good' media compatibility and problem-less internet interaction. Unfortunately RHEL has problems with many 'modern' media tasks, but that is not something you addressed ;)
Nobody said Ubuntu is the best. Its just easier and 'nicer' to use for the average Linux user than RHEL workstation 'currently' is. That is not bad in itself since we constantly strive to make our life easier - you wouldn't want to destroy your TV remote and operate the TV buttons by hand from now, would you ?
Ipads weren't supposed to be used in the office yet they are. As a member of support at a large corporation not so long ago I was expected to support and provide help to CEOs and even CTOs using them. So stating that media distros aren't for enterprise use is well very funny. What with all those webinars and online conferences / meetings or even office software that is in newer versions than on RHEL.
Oh and please do meet more CEOs [Not CTOs]. You will be amazed that they are human beings too and use everyday software / distros like we simple humans do ;)
In the end we all use Linux because its better than closed source software and we love it. Just that some variants are better at somethings than others. Even if they have nice names that include words like 'Enterprise', 'Corporate' or 'Business'.
Thanks for a good talk.Jul 28, 2012
- Not sure why you would take those as "negative words"?
