I think that's true of all OS's - not just Linux distros. Why do Windows users even try a Linux distro, if they believe Windows is perfect? If indeed you've read a number of my recent posts, than you know I generally try to see both sides of threads posted in this section. I've even been questioned (not openly) for trying to understand the frustrations associated with members who do post here.Deer Hunter
I think this is at least part of what leads to what you are calling the agenda of certain users. I think Linux users need to be very honest with themselves, and admit that no matter how good Linux gets, it will never be perfect for everybody.
Ubuntu/Linux is free to use and yet some come here to complain that it's not good enough. Then they make statements suggesting they'll return in the future. Complaining about a free OS and then wondering off, seems petty and non-productive. We should all realize that the Linux community is based on the efforts of individuals who don't run off. I've always believed that if one is seeking a Windows like environment, then perhaps it's best they remain there. My point is: That one is either part of the solution and community or their waiting for others to put forth the effort and seek (for free) to enjoy the benefits of said efforts.
I could truly care less which OS someone uses. But to complain and then say I'll be back to try again - suggests one has no desire to do anything, other than get something for nothing at the expense of others. Perhaps, one might wish to look up the definition of "Entitled".
How many Linux devs work hard to produce a viable product, only to have a user complain because they expect it to look & work just like a Windows product they purchased. IMHO Linux users should always praise the efforts of those who do stay around, trying to make a difference. I'd like to take a moment and say "THANK YOU" to those individuals who do step up in an effort to improve the Linux experience for users. I can't speak for others, but please know that my family and I sincerely appreciate your efforts. I'm aware that devs don't usually hang out here. But, perhaps my words might inspire other Linux users to remember that a "thank you" costs nothing, yet notifies those who participated that you appreciate all their efforts.
