Con el tiempo dejé de encontrar ese atractivo que tiene Ubuntu y Unity en las últimas versiones. Sobre todo porque con PC un poco obsoletos Unity se bloquea.
Por lo tanto he optado por Xubuntu que si bien no tiene los atractivos gráficos de Ubuntu-Unity me semplifica bastante el trabajo porque es muy ágil.
Se que si quiero un sistema estable con Ubuntu tengo que confiar en las versiones LTS ya que son las mejores a usar para eso pero lo que me tira para atrás es Unity.
Ese entorno gráfico al que yo lo veo super funcional y algo al que me puedo acostumbrar rápidamente pero a su vez un entorno muy pesado para el hardware que tengo en este momento. Si al iniciar el sistema veo que el mismo sistema me está comiendo 1GB de ram de los 4 que tengo, hace que no quiera instalarlo.
Está bien, pueden decirme que ahora los sistemas consumen mas porque evolucionaron y ahora son mas complejos e incluso el hardware ahora es mejor, pero eso no me convence.
Es innegable que gracias a Ubuntu, GNU/Linux en general se hizo muchísimo más popular y también estoy sumamente seguro que la mayoría de nosotros llegamos al software libre gracias a Ubuntu. Por qué? Porque fue la distro que supo simplificar las cosas para el usuario común. Porque acercó algo de frikis a usuarios que estaban cansados de Windows, sus cracks y sus virus.
