    Re: Wireless in Ubuntu

    +1

    It's sad, but true. Instead of excuses, I think it makes more sense to address the issues. I'm reminded of the sports term: "Just wait until next year".

    I would disagree with this philosophy, preferring to be informed and aware of what's available. Not to mention what would work for both my user requirements and systems should the need arise.

    Re: I give up!

    I must agree with mJayk.


    I've continued testing other XFCE distros, looking for stability and compatibility since first installing Xubuntu (won't discuss my opinions here, as I have no desire...

    Re: When did Xubuntu become so awesome?

    It's not just Xubuntu, but other distros such as Salix OS and VectorLinux are benefiting from XFCE improvements. I switched all our systems over to Xubuntu just before 10.04 ran out and have been...

    If one's dissatisfied with Ubuntu on their desktop, why continue using or arguing about it? With all the available Linux alternatives, it seems a waste of time to argue over that which Canonical...

    Re: Anyone only use LTS Releases of Ubuntu

    I've been LTS "only" for quite some time and really enjoy the stability. Should I wish to try a new release, it's always done on a spare HDD which is specifically for that purpose. I often test...

    Well said.

    It's the primary reason I truly enjoy Linux - CHOICE. Sure beats the alternative. ;)

    Re: If Ubuntu disappeared

    I'll assume "become paid" means charging for the OS.

    I never said THEY DID! My statement was: "but I'd certainly loose respect for Canonical". I'd, as in I would. Which doesn't equate to...

    I can't and won't speak for others, but I'd certainly loose respect for Canonical. They've stated (since I first installed 7.04), that Ubuntu is free and always will be. This questions a companies...

    Re: If Ubuntu disappeared

    Guess one never knows what the future may bring. They might even decide to commercialize Ubuntu and charge for it.

    If Xubuntu wasn't available, my next choice would likely be Slackware.

    Re: 13.04 Not worth the trouble

    I've often thought it was a defensive reaction - which is really unnecessary. Not only that, but it's been my observation, that it does little to improve OP's frustrations.

  18. Poll: Re: Your thoughts on Ubuntu.com without Community?
