    Re: Things that u hate in Ubuntu

    It's not something I hate, but I think is very disturbing. The many updates over the past week I've received gives me the impression that there is not a good and stable product delivered to the end-users. Compared with the origin of Ubuntu, Debian GNU, Ubuntu feels very unstable. I’m now using version 10.04.2, but I have the strong feeling that it is not very stable and reliable. The many daily updates from the past week increase that feeling with me very much.

    What I also find a big criticism is that there is a new release every half year. All these releases are often too unstable and full of childhood diseases. Instead of struggling to put out a new (half yearly) release, Canonical can better choose to put their efforts in releasing a good, stable and reliable version once in every 2 years for example.

    By updating the kernel, the reliability and stability won’t benefit either. By updating the kernel, the users will experience a high risk the new kernel will mess up a stable and functioning system due to the reason that one does not even know if the new kernel will function properly on their system.

    In that respect, Debian has their business much better together. In Debian there is still stability and reliability. The robustness of Debian is, thanks to Canonical, killed unfortunately.

    Check here for news on kpilot

    75% of the developers that work on Linux are employed by major companies. It looks like you need to work on your googlefu. If you have an idea and can come up with a good case for implementing it, submit an idea to Brainstorm, there is a quarterly review of the best ideas.

    Natty Beta 2 with Unity 2D freezes on my netbook. I removed compiz and it still freezes after several minutes and I have to do a hard reset. And I keep being notified of a system problem. Hopefully it will be corrected with daily updates through the official release.

    Sound problems, pulseaudio crashes when I play anything but .rmvb files, and now my actual sound card is no longer default so I get nothing but system sounds. Current default is some HDMI ATI crap. If Canonical doesn't get off their enormous butts and fix these issues I will seriously consider another distro, maybe ditch linux all togather (because even though Win7 doesn't beleive you should have a monitor with 1920x1080 resolution, the sound does work).

    How come you haven't started a thread in Natty Testing & Discussion to see if we can help you solve your problem?

    That there is no reliable way of stopping a linux OS PC going to suspend when there is a network user connected to it.

    Prove me wrong, but bear in mind that I have just about exhausted everything I can find on the subject on the 'web. The myriad of "scripts" around simply don't work reliably.

    I lament that Windows has no such failing.

    Update: A little OT, but I just noticed something. My file server (Ubuntu) has wakeonlan enabled. If it's suspended and I attempt to connect to it from a Windows PC, it will wake up. If I want to wake it from a Linux client I have to send a "magic packet", Seriously, which approach is more functional? (ducks head as he waits for the furious fanbois to appear).

    Cheers

    Imagine you paying U$2000 for linux network administration, you create scripts, logging, backup, automatic messages to users, you fell like a superman doing anything with your distro, well, for some reason you needed to travel, work in another project and then, 2 yars later you called to work with Ubuntu administration for a company. All your scripts crashes, no funcionality, you spend all day reading forum, tryng to understand what was removed/ changed.....

    The problem with Linux is: It is turning like a windows, so many distro, so many customizations, why the OS world cant be equal ? In the future when we have 1 or 2 OS and the updates are not like viruses, my mother will know how to install, do best things with the PC. And I'll have the chance to stay awhile far away from this crazy system and still know how to do things.

    Linux for NOT human beings !!

    2 main things off the top of my head:

    1. Lack of support by commercial software companies. Sure I use open source stuff 90% of the time even on Widnows/Mac but due to work I need stuff like AutoCAD and other specialised design packages working.

    2. Unpredictability of hardware support. I wish I could go down to a shop and buy some hardware without having to worry how well supported it is (if at all). Plus on a personal note I don't like how the mixture of updates to Ubuntu and lack of official support for old ATi graphics cards have left my perfectly fine computer with problems.
