Automatix vs EasyUbuntu

Mark Pilgrim again : I looked at Automatix (even installed it while testing off a Live CD while waiting an interminable length of time for Lenovo to ship me my computer) but ended up going with EasyUbuntu because I only need like 1/10th the stuff that EasyUbuntu does and 1/100% of what Automatix does. But either way, who could resist getting their software from a group that calls themselves the Penguin Liberation Front? Not to be confused with the Penguin Freedom Front, the Penguin Front of Liberation, or the Liberation Front of Penguins. Fucking Penguin Front of Liberation. What a bunch of wankers. Remembers me of the Comparison of Automatix and EasyUbuntu. More on Automatix is ‘not-so-good’ here.

Dive into Ubuntu

Cory Doctorow: on Boing Boing : Mac guru and software developer Mark Pilgrim recently switched to Ubuntu Linux after becoming fed up with proprietary Mac file-formats and the increasing use of DRM technologies in the MacOS. True to his reputation, Mark says Ubuntu is an ancient African word meaning “can’t install Debianâ€?.
See here his list of add-on’s (including his firefox extensions). Sample:

and 14 others.
Among the Firefox extensions: NextPlease, NoScript
And I thought Mark was diving in family now…
