Linux I have so much to thank Bill Gates for: introducing me to the baffling joys of consumer computing with Windows 95; teaching me the meaning of fear and dread with Windows 98; leading me to the sunlit uplands of Windows XP; getting me out of Microsoft altogether with the arrival of Vista. I hardly know where to start. And if I hadn't flown into a high-minded anti-Microsoft, down-with-Bill-Gates fury at the start of this year, would I ever have stumbled upon ZenWalk? I doubt it.

I personally use Ubuntu with Windowmaker or fluxbox, so as such we're in kind of the same position. Personally, One of the big advantages with Ubuntu and one of the main reasons I stick to it is the availability of obscure software.

I don't need much of it, but every time I find myself in need of some obscure software, I tend to find that someone, somewhere has already packaged it for Ubuntu. Perhaps not in the official repositories, but always somewhere.
