OpenStack 2018: Mark Shuttleworth chats to The Reg about 10-year support plans, Linus Torvalds and Russian rockets
"the guy ... who engineered machines to beat Gary Kasparov"
Here is how that makes me feel:
33.3% of me wants to jump for joy that engineers are getting their recognition
33.3% of me wants to face-palm, and ask you "trusted an engineer with commercial decisions?"
33.3% of me wants to point out to Mark Shuttleworth, it was a team who built them... not an individual (even if he managed the team)
0.01% of me, regrets wasting time typing this.. it's 17:33 and I should have left 3 minutes ago!

And the remaining 0.09 % are, I suppose, longing for a well-deserved brew ...
A while ago I was skeptical about Ubuntu in the DC, but they do seem to manage. Even in our IBM / RHEL shop they managed to slip a few installs here and there. I can't really comment on reliability / support (too few of them compared to RHEL) but nothing catastrophic. That being said, given the recent turn of events they'll probably be progressively replaced by RHEL boxen in the coming years ...
No. Not any more. Since they're trying to change everything and set standards nobody wants.
It used to be great, now it's become Shuttleworth's private tool to change everything to his incompatible vision. No thanks, swappped to Mint. No stupid netplan rubbish, no snap rubbish...
