New to open source and of what i've tried in linux (bodhi, mint, and ubuntu with gnome) I love Unity! just for a little quirk making a dockable shortcut for atari emulator(quickly fixed fooling unity to think it was a calculator , btw if you can work around this like that, guys should then let user do it without the workaround, just sayin')
Anyhow i've got a six yr old dell inspiron 6400, running Ubuntu 12.04 32 bit, with core2duo @ 1.67Ghz, ATI x1400, 4 Gs of RAM(pc only sees 3.8 :S) and a 320G HDD with 2 partitions and 4G of swap space(took me a while to figure out why I couldnt use the second partition but just sudo nautilus and change properties ), hardware worked fine from the go, even external sound card from soundblaster connected to yamaha reciever(which sounds really really nice). Single boot since i got to hate windows lately. Thing boots up in around 24 seconds, apart from the workarounds that ive had with program installs (hey its a new OS so it is different), only thing that I find weird is:
Hibernation works IF and only IF you resume within, say, 2 hrs. If you go over that it boots to a blinking screen. why is that? I dont know, maybe I'll create a thread about this but it really doestn bother me.
After getting compiz manager so the dock buttons are down to 18px, so it just looks nice!
Question, how come on the start/system button theres no choice for restart?
Kudos for great work!
