I decided to install Ubuntu 8.04 beta, and try to imagine myself as a novice desktop user and how this may be the replacement desktop for my mother, or my wife or sister (note: all my brothers are geeks so I can’t include them) or a small business.
Ubuntu has evolved over the last years, and has become quite popular on the desktop. Ubuntu is also working on its position in the enterprise. I, however, am a bit apprehensive to adopt Ubuntu for the server, and have a tough time recommending my clients to use Ubuntu vs. Red Hat (CentOS) or SuSE. I currently prefer CentOS for the free distribution, and RHEL where required (like SAP implementations).
