Linux The BBC interviews Torvalds. I like this bit: "For me, Linux on the desktop is where I started, and Linux on the desktop is literally what I still use today primarily - although I obviously do have other Linux devices, including an Android phone - so I'd personally really love for it to take over in that market too. But I guess that in the meantime I can't really complain about the successes in other markets." Linux on the desktop is quite passe. Phones and servers is where it's at.

In our case, the one we know better: we use Kubuntu for the desktop and not Ubuntu. We just use Ubuntu in their server version. It hasn't break when updating (we just do regular updates).

We don't update from one version to another (like from 10.04 to 10.10, it's not a very good idea, in my humble opinion), we have at least two partitions in each computer, because we install (we always do a clean install) in one partition, while keeping the old one (just in case we need the old version meanwhile).
