Re: Ubiuntu 12.04 needs a lot of work
I've been Ubuntu only since 7.04 and agree with some of your assessment. However, instead of leaving the Ubuntu family I installed Xubuntu (XFCE) and have been very pleased with the result.
My only suggestion is to use what works for you. What the future has in store for Ubuntu, may or may not meet with your needs/expectations. Thus, it's only logical to remain in the environment that best meets said needs. Perhaps, you might occasionally, check in on the status of Ubuntu for reassessment.
However, posting here has no impact on the Ubuntu devs, as they don't often participate in the forums. If your seeking confrontation or recruiting for Fedora - good luck with that.
Thanks for sharing your feedback.
