What does Ubuntu mean?
Ubuntu is an African word meaning 'Humanity to others', or 'I am what I am because of who we all are'. The Ubuntu distribution brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the software world.
Could they be more condescending to black Africans whom I assume are their intended beneficiaries, not middle class people in developed countries like me. I'm OK, you're OK in African. Some snooty Latin phrase was unavailable? Or an English word unused by more than a dozen people?
Notice when clicking through Ubuntu installation screens the button to continue is called Forward, not Next. I guess Next is contaminated by Microsoft Windows. Too many people are familiar with it. That decision must have gotten an extra beer at Miller time.
I just debased myself and ordered Ubuntu on CD. Hopefully by the time it arrives in "4 to 6 weeks to deliver, depending on the country of shipping", I will have become completely despondent and bought a MacBook, outrageously overpriced plus $300 by Apple.
