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

Is there any real difference?

>> No.64365785

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

>> No.64365790

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.




no wonder google's ditching these hacks

You can remove it.

Oh, I see now. My mistake.

>> No.64366697

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

>> No.64366707

Aside from amazon(which was disabled anyway)
Debian by default comes with way less proprietary software.

>> No.64366795

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

>> No.64366844

>why the hell would you trust canonical?
because I can read their free open source software's code. anything proprietary I use, I would also use on Debian (drivers mostly).

who cares? all the important people in google use macs.

>because I can read their free open source software's code
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They want even more outdated packages.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.

Google and Amazon seem to have various continuing disputes. I believe that played major role in this decision.

>> No.64367780

ubuntu is owned by a company and isnt fully free and they do what they want with it. debian is a community project and not ran by jews that just want to profit.
