Apparently a one-click install of Ubuntu on Digital Ocean sets the OS up with UTC timezone and an unlocked root account. The timezone is fine but I expected them to ask for a username since usually has root locked. So I would've saved more time doing a normal install, since I don't have an automated way to configure the OS after my "one click". If I did, then it would be faster. The target audience for this feature must be someone making a ton of servers at once?

This story came from the Minecraft server, where I chose Ubuntu because it's the officially supported Linux distro for Minecraft. I want to seriously try a non-Ubuntu Linux server soon but I'm waiting for the right project 🤞 (and still waiting for my 2012 laptop to die hehe)
