I'm a long term user of Ubuntu, and I'm staying with it. I quite like Unity (still got some rough edges), and it does everything I want, so I see no point in changing.
Can you think of any other reasons for not changing?
Well, I have a completely working system that does (almost) everything I want, looks good, runs fast. If I install something else can that be guaranteed? Will it be 'better'?
I also believe that Canonical and Shuttleworth have done an enormous amount to make Linux accessible to the general public (i.e. me), so I'm happy to continue to use their product - they deserve a little devotion/dedication if only for that.
Hmm, so you haven't tried anything else so don't actually know what might be better, and your preference is based on loyalty rather than technical merit. In other circles you could easily be labelled a "fan boy"
Although I haven't tried anything else (In linux space anyway), I am perfectly happy with what I have now - it's technical merit, for me, is fine. In effect I have no incentive to change, because it all works so well. I'm sure there probably are features from other distro's that are better, but I don't need them.
But I disagree with Fanboy. Just because you are happy with a product, and are happy to recommend it, doesn't make you a fan boy. For example, I have a Honda Civic. It's a great car, it's does 182k miles, engines still quiet and it does nearly 40mpg. I recommended a Honda to my mother on the strength of that car. Other cars have more technical merit, undoubtedly, cars I haven't tried. But that Civic does everything I need and to change it, just because I can, would be silly. Am I a Honda Fanboy? Or just a happy user?
