Tooooo many buuuugs in Ubuntu 14.04
 
  1. People, I am a very ethusiastic Linux user, already for years. But Ubuntu 14.04 is fading out my passion for Linux: so maaaany bugs, so many bothering failures!
    Does somebody have a sugestion before I quit?

I used to install Lubuntu for friends, recently switched over to Mint Mate - zero problems.

You may have a hardware problem.

3) What problems?
4) What is the hardware?

1 - If one do no enter password a few minutes after logon, it gets blocked
2 - Many freezings during operation: system has to be reinitiated
3 - I can not send messages via webmail... it says: "sending...." and after some time, "error". The same webamail in Win7 has Zero problems
4 - Labels of the menu tabs are wrong color / dark
5 - Programs / firefox close suddenly and a message pops up: "sorry. Internal fault. Do you want to report problem" I say yes, but...
6 - Slow to open applications. I upgrade my computer cause I though it was hardware limitation. That is not! Too heavy!
7 - Several incompatibilities with files from MSOffice (pptx, docx). Loose formating hardly.
That what I remember just now.

I installed Ubuntu 14.04 in my desktop (home), my laptop and desktop at my working office. All same!

I wouldn't have said Debian Wheezy if I meant Linux Mint! Mint is Ubuntu with a little bit more bling and even more restriction I wouldn't personally use it.

I doubt you will ever see a solution to this so I would quit now if it's a deal breaker.
For the rest I would also, as k3lt01 does, suggest Debian (and Wheezy otherwise known as Testing is probably a good bet) -- I use it because I gave up on Ubuntu because it seemed to get buggier and buggier for me at the time.

Linux is about choice. This means distro-hopping. If you don't like one distro there are thousands of others to explore, much to the dismay of "no fracure" fanboys who want one distro to rule them all. If you can't be bothered then go back to Windoze, but you are missing out. It's like going into a store and leaving immediately after picking up a product you don't like. To make it even more ridiculous, almost all products in the store are free and open-source.

Here are listings of distros with some explanations:

It's been reported that LibreOffice can open OpenDocument (ODT, ODF, etc) files saved from MS Office perfectly, and MS Office can open OpenDocument files saved from LibreOffice perfectly, and that you'll never have a problem if you have both office suites saving to OpenDocument format.

Thanks for the heads-up -- I'll check whether this makes any difference at all to the policy of saving everything as .docx at work or not...

My suggestion is to really look at the manual for the 14.04 ubuntu ok.

Then if you feel you need a distro change that will not let you down.

I would look at some of the elder members in here and see what they are using for their stable distro.

At one time i used many disto's in my profile but the truth is there is only two main ones I need.

Then I usually run the new livecd's from all the other distro's from grub2.

I have found not to tell people what they should like but look at what the real trouble shooters are using for there daily system.

The reason why is because we do not really want to test on our stable systems.

We just want it to work. Since this forum is not about one distro you will find many flavors.

I my self have run 14.04 64 live desktop and I use it to test some of my builds so they run in a stock Ubuntu.

I have not had any problems but the truth is I am only testing a couple of programs then I reboot to my stable system.

as far as linuxMint debian I fould it to need more work and probally better to do a full install. then there is LinuxMint Ubuntu

And it ran ok as a live cd. but none of them are my stable system.
