I remember that when I announced that GLM’s servers were being switched to Ubuntu, I got comments on that post and some emails asking me to reconsider this for reasons I didn’t agree with.
Some months later, I read that Wikimedia is switching their ~400 servers to Ubuntu. Beyond this being a surprise to me, I applaud this wise move, with which they already feel happy.
Having Ubuntu on the server has been a pleasant experience, so I’d encourage those sysadmins who (want to) have an offline life to switch to Ubuntu!
