comment What advantages does Ubuntu have over Windows as an environment for programming?
@Aesin you're technically right, but in practice, you only ever need to manually install rather exotic stuff that not much else depends on. And if I want to use, say, a newer version of a common piece software (like gcc), I simply don't install it unless it's necessary.

@Aesin and kara deniz, I don't get your point about the number of package managers; alias fancynewpackagemanager=apt-get and bam, you have a "new" package manager. What matters is that the repositories are comprehensive and RELIABLE. You have to trust the maintainers themselves and more importantly you have to trust that they'll take great care not to let malicious code slip through. Off the top of my head, I've searched for sfml (a library I use) and it's not in the MacPorts repository, and it's hard to say anything about reliability.

comment Why isn't Startup Disk Creator working in 12.04?
It's sep 2013 and I still can't use Ubuntu's Startup disk creator; the created disk doesn't work. It's very embarrassing to have to switch to windows from Ubuntu, in order to create a startup USB for Ubuntu...
