Now what means is that popularity is bought and paid for with the marketing and media hype, Canonical is just the "open" version of Apple.
"Canonical is just the "open" version of Apple."
Which is a great thing. The only reason I don't use OS X anymore is because I'm forced into their walled garden approach, which is making heavy inroads from iOS lately. Also because I like to choose the hardware I run my OS on and I find that Apple's hardware is sup-par for the price most of the time (I'll take Lenovo anytime in that price range).
If Ubuntu can become as polished and user oriented as OS X, while still being open, I think we can congratulate ourselves. I'd say it's on its way. Edited 2012-10-23 01:26 UTC
