#ubuntu isn't chatting about nothing, it is all support (and people 
behaving badly and then being guided in how to be less childish - this 
is a problem and there is a substantial team of operators trying to keep 
it under control). #ubuntu-uk is a little more relaxed and friendly, but 
support questions are answered.

these are quite different things, "Like it or lump it" is suggesting 
that the options are to be happy with it or be unhappy with it. "like it 
or go" is suggestion the options are to be happy with it or be happy 
with something else. Twice the happy!

not really, it will be much the same, or better

I hope so! Wouldn't it be great if people used Ubuntu at work because it 
was the most suitable operating system. That doesn't mean you can't use 
it at home too.
