I've never seen so much asshattery as I encounter with the ubuntu team. From the hostile forums, to the beta-testing of inferior tools to the exclusion of tools that WORK, to the limitations of the installer, to the deletion of popular programs that have WORKED VERY WELL, to releasing immature software, and above all THE EXTREME ATTITUDE.
Your way is not the only way, nor is it even among the best.
Ubuntu has lost my trust, permanently, with this latest fiasco. They fucked up the IPV6 stack. You update to 10.04 and BAM, no internet. You can NOT get back online. You have to do a FRESH install of an older version and at the cost of formatting your drive. Hope you backup your stuff as aggressively as I do!
NOBODY can claim competence and fuck up that badly. It's like hiring a highly trained combat experienced limo driver who suddenly can't stop slamming into people whenever he drives you anywhere. You just can't trust them anymore. At all. It doesn't matter what the reason is.
Ubuntu used to be my favorite thing in the world of software. It was a delight. Well, they've fallen quite a long way from BEST and most popular to 'best imitation of a Windows Release.'
