Happy Birthday, Ubuntu!

Seven years ago, on the 20th of October, 2004, Mark Shuttleworth and the warm-hearted Warthogs of the Warty Team announced the first official Ubuntu release – Ubuntu 4.10, code name “Warty Warthog”. That was only the first representative in a line of operating systems that were made by the human beings for the human beings, aiming to let non-tech normal people use Linux.

Happy Birthday Ubuntu!

From that day on, Ubuntu is continuing to gain more popularity, fascinating the computer world steadily and expanding its’ user base each day. Today Ubuntu has more than 12 millions users with a vision of achieving more than 200 millions of users within 2015. Way to go Ubuntu – Good Luck!

Those who are nostalgic about the version 4.10, have a glimpse of the default desktop of Warty! 🙂

  1. I miss the brown/orange of the older versions of Ubuntu.  I started using at 7.04 Fiesty  and I always loved the colour schemes until the started to use purple.

    1. I started with Hardy Heron. It came with a beautiful wallpaper. I loved the theme colors and how they were in such contrast to the Windows I had just abandoned. That brown and orange color scheme will always remind me of diving into a new, unknown and exciting world.
