Linux Yeah, it's the day of double-dippin' today. And, the contradiction couldn't be bigger. In one corner we have one of the oldest and most respected distributions, and in the other corner we have the sometimes controversial but immensely popular relative newcomer. Slackware 13.37 and Ubuntu 11.04 have been released.

Unity is in the right direction

As a long time Mac OS developer I have to say that I'm really impressed of the progression Ubuntu did using Unity.
I'm using it on a netbook and they really optimized a lot the use of the scarce pixels available on a small screen. Really well done canonical!
Ubuntu could really get a large share if it only would provide an effective way for developers to earn money developing for it.
I have to admit I would love to develop for Ubuntu if only it would possible to get some money realizing software for Linux.
Unfortunately till the situation is in that way it is almost a desperate situation.
As anyone will say ' never think to realize something for the Linux market, simply because 'There is no any Linux Market for desktop'
I will develop only for Mac and iOS and Windows and anything other where people pay for software.
It's a pity. I hope it will change.
