Google is moving from proprietary shitware to a truly free operating system. Why aren't you?

debian is typically more stable than ubuntu. that's probably the only real reason why they'd switch for their servers.

>> No.64365790

>>64365775
They won't be paying Canonical for Ubuntu customer support. Other than that there's no difference.

This does make sense, but couldn't they have just stopped using LTS from Ubuntu? Guess they have another reason to switch.

I got a problem in Ubuntu 17.10

when i drag a file icon from the desktop to a network smb share, it stays as the hand. it's exactly like this.

ubuntu doesn't even want to fix it. they just marked this "critical" -- their words -- bug as expired a few weeks ago without even doing anything about it.

that may very well be true, but after that, why the hell would you trust canonical?
Ubuntu has a few things going for it over Debian, but that alone is enough reason for me not to use it

Debian by default comes with way less proprietary software.

Not a big fan of Canonical. Debian is closer to freedom as in speech.

because I can read their free open source software's code. anything proprietary I use, I would also use on Debian (drivers mostly).

sure, do you also read the source code changes and compile everything yourself before updating? you cant trust whoever compiles and packages SW for their repos, because they most likely work for canonical, unlike in Debian
>anything proprietary I use, I would also use on Debian
such is life, unfortunately (mainly wifi drivers), but that wasnt my point. my point was they were selling info on their own users. whether the SW they used for that purpose was or not proprietary, id say, isnt as big of a deal

Im not saying that there is something going on behind the scenes, but the fact that there used be, means you cant be sure that there isnt

They want even more outdated packages. They'll move to CentOS in a few years so they can keep using python 2.4 until 2025.
