How are you?
and thank you for joining!
(I see that Andrew changed your username...)There are:
Ubuntu (Gnome); KUbuntu (KDE); XUbuntu (Xfce)
And I'm using Ubuntu (Gnome) 8.10. I did not wrote what I think about Ubuntu (Gnome) 8.10, except that it's better than KUbuntu & XUbuntu, I wrote about the attention that this "Canonical" company is dedicating to the Xfce and KDE desktops which IMPO (yep, profesional) should be declared and release as an Alpha GNU/Linux Distribution, not to give it for the every day user! (Debian Xfce, KDE and even LXDE distributions are MUCH reliable than the non-gnome Ubuntu distros).
My problem is that Canonical is misrepresentation truth
, this is not a nice thing to do. (duh!).1)
So far KDE & Xfce needed to be declared as Alpha-ware2)
Drivers (from ALL kinds) are available in the distro's repository 99.9999999% of the distributions. - Okay, so Ubuntu (as it seems) has its exclusive "Proprietary Drivers Manager" GUI called Jockey
and on every detected hardware's note there is "Tested by the Ubuntu team" - okay, so? can you give us "More Information" it doesn't mean that this driver(s) made by you (Ubuntu/Canonical) - Welcome - Linux Wireless
- you can get ALL Wireless/WiFi support with ArchLinux
by entering only one command-line, without the needing to Reboot your machine and without a stupid "monopoly" Jockey GUI
(Olny Ubuntu Has This Feature, "what will you all do without us?" - FALSE)3)
A vast majority of the softwares in the "Ubuntu repository" are already in Slackware, Debian etc. --- and by the way, most of the softwares don't getting updates (not even critical/security updates) < Get ArchLinux
and you'll be and feel much more "Up-To-Date"Ubuntu policies are shit < No support from me, anymore
one more to the Ubuntu hall of shameAlacarte (Gnome menu editor)
is installed on XUbuntu 9.04 - sometimes it is doing its job and most of the time !NOT! < so this is an "Official" GNU'Linux OS
when I opened a thread at Ubuntu Forums about these (and more) Xfce flaws, this thread (with 32 replies) deleted after two days and my account was blocked (still blocked) -- yep, 32 replies - only 2 days and THAT MUCH < and most of the users at this thread (mostly Gnome/Xfce users that are very interested in the future development of Xfce agreed with almost everything I said)
If you really want Ubuntu, get gNewSense
, It's very reliable, NO LIES, guaranteed. - read article: gNewSense first impressions
probably because mine is compiled from source including my kernel and desktop environment
How long it took you to do that? From now on
: Ubuntu OS... GIVE US MONEY$$$$$$$$$
