“…so I now install Ubuntu on a machine and then use it as a tool. This is one reason why I can’t get my head around people who are constantly distro hopping. There is a level of learning you get from trying different distros, sure, but I just can’t get my head around people who are like, ‘This icon is in the wrong place – I’ll wipe the distro and start again.’ I use the Linux desktop as a tool to do my job and so the desktop is not particularly interesting to me any more, and I think that’s probably true of a lot of people. It’s not super-interesting any more.”
