Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu 13.04 has been released, with the Linux 3.8.8 kernel, a faster and less resource hungry Unity desktop, LibreOffice 4.0, and much more. Ubuntu users will know where to get it, and you're looking for a new installation, have fun. Also fun: UbuntuKylin.

It's ironic, because your need to disclose the inconsequential details of your browser on your posts seems to indicate you view your computer as an end.


In any case, there are plenty of commercial software being developed and deployed on Linux. Also you keep using that term "ISV" which does not mean what you want it to mean. Linux has is plenty of traction among ISVs, specially in the middle and back ends of computing infrastructures.

Yes, Photoshop may not support Linux anytime soon (if ever). But then again, none of the commercial EDA packages we use on linux are going to be ported over to OSX either. And neither are some of the commercial databases, accounting/personnel/financial middleware, industrial control suites, etc, which run on Linux and not on OSX (or even Windows). Applying your own logic, that must mean OSX is hostile towards ISVs then?
