I agree totally. One of the advantages I see in a group like Ubuntu-AU
is its knowledge of the product as it comes from Canonical. If your
going to go to a possible new client about the possibility of them
migrating to Ubuntu you really need to stick with what is available
within Ubuntu. Why? well using my education example much of the
current problem is people downloading and installing programs from
anywhere and everywhere onto NSW DET systems. With Ubuntu you don't
need to do that because by far and large 99.9% of what you will need
is available in the official repositories. Installing programs outside
of the repositories greatly increases security risks.
