I recently came across this article about the man behind Ubuntu (pronounced 00-boon-too) and it was a great read. I didn’t know how Mark became the billionaire that he is today until I read the article. In 1999 Verisign bought out his company thawte consulting which a major purchase at 575 million . Through some additional ventures and capital he became a billionaire at 26. April 2008 was the last time I actually had a windows machine for my very own usage. My Laptop ran Hardy and now it runs Intrepid. Every unit at my home runs ubuntu or some sort of linux software except for my wife’s laptop (work related applications). With all the applications available in the Ubuntu repository, I am very content in my no windows world.
No Windows For Mr. Shuttleworth Or Me
