I updated my server to Ubuntu 14.04 (LTS) yesterday. It’s a pleasure to work with Ubuntu, because updates, upgrades and all the things that you have to do are so easy (“linux-easy”). Coming from a long linux history (Suse, Redhat, Gentoo, …) where every update fails because of minor reasons, this was just a pleasure.
So, please stop bitching about MIR & Co for a second and admire the work that has been put into that. All the communities discussing and writing documentation, fixing bugs and stuff. It was very good work! Nicely done!
