    You get a full refund of the purchase price if not completely satisfied with Xubuntu.

    If you actually took part in testing, your opinion about Nvidia may change. We have a very strong Q/A team, as well as the U+1 sub-forum, where you can help to make things better.

    I do kernel testing and debugging at work, I don't want to do it at home.
    I want simple, stable products with predictable response, that's all.

    Atlas Shrugged describes the pretense rather well.

    For those who don't want to read the book, here's an excerpt from a "summary":
    ... a socialistic pay plan, based on the principle that everyone should work "according to his ability," but be paid "according to his need." In practice, this meant that workers of ability were punished with longer hours, and forced to support "needier" workers the lazy and incompetent with compensation sufficient to fulfill all their alleged needs.

    Nobody says you have to. But neither is anyone else obligated to do it for you. That's the bottom line.

    I don't feel it was right to take away from the final score because of the installation. First, you upgraded which is always an iffy thing to do. Secondly, it's something people do once in most cases. After that there are months of every day use, which I believe is the most important part. I would easily give Xubuntu a 10/10. It's a near perfect desktop for me.
