It's great how this great #Linux timeline is still updated on #Wikipedia. Maybe an idea to print the SVG with a 2 meter height and paste it to the wall near my desktop.

@Jeroen. Twee meter is mooit. Er naast om de centimeter een streepje en je hebt een mooie groeimeter (of krimp als je oud wordt) ;)

I'd really love to get a poster of this printed. Such an intense diagram.

WTF! #Ubuntu drops #Unity8 and goes back to #GNOME! As a happy GNOME 3 user I think this is great! But still I am in a shock! It's a very bold business move from Mark Shuttleworth. And what about the existing Ubuntu GNOME I am using. Will that become the default flavor in a year?

Growing Ubuntu for Cloud and IoT, rather than Phone and convergence

Image/photo

We are wrapping up an excellent quarter and an excellent year for the company, with performance in many teams and products that we can be proud of. As we head into the new fiscal year, it’s appropriate to reassess each of our initiatives. I’m writing to let you know that we will end our investment in Unity8, the phone and convergence shell. We will shift our default Ubuntu desktop back to GNOME for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

Although I have really enjoyed Unity, I am glad Ubuntu is getting back to its roots.

I'm using Ubuntu GNOME but I decided if Phone/Convergence ever started looking up, I was open to a Unity switch. It sucks that the market didn't allow for it's success but at least something else good comes from this. GNOME is good!

Sooner or later we might all ending up with Free- Open- Bsd, really going back to the roots.
Times one could trust Linux may be over already, but i'm also still using Debian-server and Fedora-xfce4-desktop myself.
