12.04 gray windows
Its not going that well. After being all excited at finding a way around the black screen error on my Acer laptop, I'm finding 12.04 very buggy and seemingly unstable.
I first had to use a workaround to eliminate the "system has encountered a problem" dialogue that has plagued me from the beginning, which tried to send an error report that wouldn't send, that said....
My apps crash all the time meaning, they go grey and become unresponsive for a short to long period of time. Worst case, (DVD Styler) the app just closes right in the middle of trying to use it.
Since I normally am browsing, the browser (firefox) does this all the time and also update manager almost never opens without graying out and hanging while the window is gray you get the picture.
In addition the whole system slows down after awhile something I never thought I'd say about ubuntu on my laptop.
I think all these are related and over all it just is not the same super fast stable OS I've been used to, not by a long shot.
Happiness is a full blown install of Ubuntu with Compiz Fusion and Emerald cranking away. No virus, no spyware, no malware no Windows!
