*headdesk* Over the years there have been no shortage of articles where people try switching to Ubuntu (or other distro) for some period of time, to see if they can use it as a replacement for Windows.  Some are happy with the results, but many have a hard time with the move.  One thing I’ve noticed, as have many commentators on each article, is that many of the problems are due to faulty perceptions or assumptions, not faulty software.
So if you or anybody else is thinking about giving Ubuntu a try, please keep the following things in mind:

Creation as Contribution

Blog post by: Michael Hall
This was originally part of my post Distribution is Contribution, but it wasn’t the primary point I wanted to make there, and I realized there was far more I wanted to say about this subject.

Production

The origin of all value, FOSS or otherwise, is in the production of something.  Every other form on contribution, anything else that adds value to FOSS, comes from the refinement, combination, distribution or transformation of this original production.  The most common form of production in FOSS is written code.  More attention is paid to written code than any other form of production, and contributions are (as stated in the previous post) more commonly measured by the quantity of code that any other metric.  Even in other forms of production, in artwork and documentation, the origin of value comes from the production, with other modes of contribution only adding value by the refinement, combination, distribution or transformation of that production.
