Well, I have been running Ubuntu on my desktop for over a month. In that short period of time, I found that Ubuntu is just not for me. I love it on my Thinkpad, do not get me wrong but on my desktop, I need something different.
I miss not having to edit something, really. I even stopped developing on my desktop. Weird since many developers gave up Gentoo or other distros so they could have a stable system.
Isn’t is strange that I could get a server to run on Gentoo, Arch, or FreeBSD, but not on Ubuntu. Seriously, this is not right. Ubuntu is supposed to make things easier for me. That’s what all the Ubuntu users tell me.
To be honest, I got a lot of things done when I was running Gentoo and FreeBSD systems. Arch Linux opened up a new world to me as well though I preferred to do things the Gentoo/BSD way. If it wasn’t for that bad battery in my motherboard, I would probably still be running either PC-BSD or Gentoo now.
Right now I need a stable system to get Django to run properly. For me, that means doing it with Gentoo, possibly with FreeBSD.
Will I give up on Ubuntu, no way. As I mentioned many times, Ubuntu is the choice of users in Vietnam. I still need to use it but if I want to go back to my geek roots, I got to use Gentoo again.
I am not a distro hopper, I am just a Gentoo ‘jump back and forth-er’ 🙂
