Thumbs down Hate Ubuntu


From- EdWh

I ran Ubuntu for several years until they change the system desktop to attempt to imitate a touch screen on a desktop, I tried in vain to bring up the old Gnome desktop but could not.
I then switched to Mint, whose desktop is Gnome and works quite well, except I had two minor glitches, one being the screen presented at the desktop to take you to different help places but if you used it when you got to the site you could not close the screen to view the information, I had to bookmark and then return to desktop where I could close the screen and use bookmark, I reported several times and they made no attempt to provide a fix. I forgot the other item but it was something on the same order so I dumped the distro and went to Kuhuntu Kde desktop and am glad I made the switch it is better than both Ubuntu and Mint, especially the new 14.04 Lts.
I am not a guru so do very little with command line but can use apt-get if needed, in the Kde version it is so close to Windows 7, when using I have to look at the start button to see which system I am in. I run a dual boot Kde/Win7 on same Ssd Hdd. EdwH-- WW11 Vet, I am 84 this month. We have a lousy President.

Kubuntu is Ubuntu. Ubuntu prime has Unity and Kubuntu has KDE. Even if they were different distributions, it is not necessary to change systems to change the GUI.

Are you saying that is good or bad? I would say it is a bad thing, but some people would say it is good.

Ubuntu has a bad tendency of releasing unstable packages... at least from my POV as to why I dislike it.

I have no idea what Unity is like now, but when it was introduced it was a buggy piece of crap. And then there is Synaptic, which I believe is also a Comical offering.

I think you'll find that Synaptic is a Debian. Tool (I thought they dropped it from Ubtuntu years ago). Personally I don"t find it any worse than the other graphical package managers I have used.

This has been explained to you in another thread where you come out with this.

Synaptic is the only GUI package manager I've liked to use. I even use it on Debian Sid without issue.

Not hate, at lest can easily uninstall it (think I said that already...) but limited and proprietary like ffOS (where I will use hate.)

I do not think Everyone hates Ubuntu. the package system is a nightmare and as a package builder for 0ubuntu it is a real pain some times building with pbuilder and building multiple arches multiple ubuntu versions.

I have never had one time since 9.10 that a distro upgrade actually work. that said I log into kubuntu and build the debs push the deb-source and builds to the repo and be done.

You think that package system that does all the dependencies is done by magic it is a huge amount of work setting all that up just so people can apt-get then remember is the package built actually for that system take a look at what pbuilder does.

Are you saying KDE is better than Gnome? LOL

I'm kidding. Someone said this thread was flamebait. I thought I'd be naughty and make a funny.
