    What have you been smoking?

    Linux is the only thing that even works on old and slow hardware. Try putting a windows 7 or 8 on a pentium 3... you're lucky if you get it to boot. Meanwhile there are plenty of lightweight Linux distros focused on older hardware that work and run great with no problems.

    Ubuntu isn't one of them though...

    Canonical already is profitable on the server market. And with there new
    approach they have a real possibility to become profitable on the desktop
    and mobile as well.
