"Ubuntu is a great platform for software development. We covered a lot of ground in a short amount of time, and the students who used Ubuntu instead of Mac OS X or (gasp) Windows were way more productive. We particularly loved the feature where you type in a command (such as
aclocal) and Ubuntu tells you to run
sudo apt-get install automakeif the command isn't yet installed. What could be better?"
