Well, actually i didn’t care much about Ubuntu the first time – just another attempt to push Linux, i thought and while i love and respect the concept of Open Source and bet, that the progress in IT in the last years only, really only depends on the power of Open Source and the “Swarm Intelligence” of many good and idealistic programmers and their playground, the Internet, i couldn’t warm to Linux “just for fun”, much too much to get to know the ropes.

So, now and then, i installed the next “easy going Linux” with the same result – too much to read to be able to use it. But then, somewhere along the way, i stumbled across the meaning of Ubuntu...

and got hooked.

Nelson Mandela:
"Ubuntu does not mean that people should not address themselves. The question therefore is: Are you going to do so in order to enable the community around you to improve?”

But daily life goes on and i forgot it. Then i looked for a good interactive debugger for Ruby/Rails and got Feisty Fawn – extremely annoyed with my Windows®, which seems to make life hard for the Open Source products, i decided to do it again: to try.

And now? Actually, it is fun to work with Ubuntu, even if you are a beginner...

so excuse me please, i have to go exploring ;-)
