  1. Yay! Ubuntu!

  2. Another example of the superior marketing capabilities of Canonical/Ubuntu! Die Fedora, DIE!

  3. Excellent spot!
    foo your type of comment really doesn’t help portray a united, friendly or helpful image for Linux users.

  4. My girlfriend stuck one on her car but the quality of the sticker was not good enough and the sticker desintegrated in a couple of days :(
    Hope this one will last ;)

  5. Why do you want Fedora to die, foo? Even if you don’t run it, the project is making major contributions to Ubuntu’s upstream; for example, Karmic’s bootloader is slated to use Fedora Plymouth technology.

    While I do think certain damaging splits in the Linux ecosystem (for example, the rift between RPM and DEB systems) could be repaired by some final triumph of Debian heirs, I think Fedora is a positive influence overall.

  6. Plaster those stickers everywhere! Go, go, go!

    goo: he is just kidding, it’s all in jest, in the spirit of very friendly ‘competition’, mocking real competition where they can want their competitor to die, etc

  7. I agree – the quality of Ubuntu stickers really is not great. I’ve been through a few on my sticker-laden water-bottle already, and each time it’s a pain to scrape the adhesive off and apply a new sticker every few weeks. Now I don’t bother; but it leaves Ubuntu un-represented upon my water receptacle. :-(

  8. Yeah, I had one on my bike and it didn’t take long to desintegrate.

    Maybe ship less stickers with the CDs and use more plastic ;)

    I want them to be seen anywhere!! Great cheap marketing (although a bit vandal)

  9. foo is an anti-Ubuntu troll (midly, most of his trolling consists of “when will you send this upstream?” “will this be submitted to debian?”) so this was a sarcastic post.

  10. Ubuntu is the most overrated distro ever put out. It’s not nearly as good as its fanbois portray it to be — certainly not moreso than many other distros. Its “success” is all the result hype and fanboi “marketing”.

  11. […] Zimmerman: Random Ubuntu sighting. You’d be surprised some of the places you can find an Ubunutu logo, like the place Matt […]

  12. Hey mdz. What’s the license of this photo? May I use it?
