Ubuntu: Defined

I just had to post this...

An anthropologist proposed a game to the kids in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the kids that who ever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they had run like that as one could have had all the fruits for himself they said: ''UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?''

'UBUNTU' in the Xhosa culture means: "I am because we are"

I found it on FaceBook, somebody posted it. Isn't that what Linux Ubuntu is?

Unity is slowly getting better, however I don't agree with them going their own way. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if they started writing their own default apps and stopped including 3rd party apps out of the box. I could even see them going nuts and breaking their ties with Debian entirely! We'll just have to be patient to see how everything ends up.

A bunch of drivel. Doesn't work that way in these parts of the world. Win the race, take all the damn fruit and then give/share with whom you please, if you please.

That was the original philosophy behind Ubuntu Linux. Not sure how much they still follow that.
