Hi, everyone! Hope you're all having a nice life! :)
Here's a fun and "interesting" post I just read: https://www.theregister.com/2022/05/31/the_cynics_guide_to_linux/
An excerpt:

2. Ubuntu​

"Ubuntu is an ancient African word that means I can't configure Debian.*"

Ubuntu started out as an effort to displace Windows from the number one consumer OS spot by making a Linux that was easier to install and run. It worked. So Microsoft threatened to sue because it looked a bit like Windows if you squinted, and the whole thing fell apart. Ubuntu decided that if it was dodgy to look Windows-like, it would look like Mac OS X instead. Then it went back to GNOME again.

Interesting, semi-funny article.

9. Arch Linux


Finally we come to the 10th entry in our list, because Unix people are difficult and like to count from zero.
I had to go back and verify ... the list does indeed start at 0.
