I would also like to add your experience is not typical with installing Ubuntu. I have been building Windows systems for around 10 years and Linux systems for the last 5 years. I am typing to you from Ubuntu 12.04 right now.
In addition to that, you appear to be making your decision to no longer offer Ubuntu based on comments in a 3rd party forum rather than their official community forum
or other official help resources
. While LinuxQuestions.org is a great place to get information it doesn't always mean it's the best nor official for the distribution offered (though we strive
and I like to think this is the best place for information based on my experiences).
You may be interested that Ubuntu offers professional support
to resolve the problems you experience. This service is paid but it also means you have someone to hold accountable for answers.
take away something from this forum experience on LinuxQuestions. You will recieve a similar reaction on any Linux forum because, we're offering support to you
as volunteers in our spare time. We're not obligated to help you, you don't pay us, and it is you who should be more understanding; not us.
And while you have been rude with your one reply, not one person has lost their temper and shot you down for help. Remember, the more rude you are regularly on this *free* help resource the less likely you are to receive help in the future from its members. Doc CPU asked about the formatting because it's nice to not have to work too hard to help someone (I had similar problems reading your initial post).
I understand you feel you have the right to demand certain things and quality but that's the Windows world where you pay in excess of $300 for an OS and thousands of dollars for annual support. The Linux professional world (i.e. SuSE Enterprise, RedHat Enterprise, Cononical professional, etc.) is no different than getting support in the Windows world. However the Community world is *much* different than you're used to. If you would like to depend on paid support where you can make demands as usual, I provided you a link to Canonical Support (makers of Ubuntu). But please, give us a break we're doing this for our own enjoyment as hobbyists and interested professionals a-like.
Please do not take my post as scolding, that is not my intent. I'm merely attempting to show you the difference so that next time you may approach with the right mind set. I've made similar mistakes when I first came to learn about Linux though my actions had much more dire consequences.
