Re: Things that you dislike in Ubuntu
The lack of formatting makes this an eyesore to read. Paragraphs, people!

You stated Linux is about choice. Well, shouldn't the developers be the ones to choose how the OS works? If you have no involvement in the dev process, why should you be making choices for them? Sure, you can lobby against changes (especially controversial ones such as the Unity shopping lens), but you are not making the dev's decisions for them. So stop acting like they are 5 and you are their mother.
Don't like Unity? This is what I hate about you people. All you do is complain "UNITY SUX" "omg lagfest" "LOL U USE UNITY??? HAHAHAHA NUB!" Did you know that, rather than complain about how much you hate it, you could save time, keystrokes, and energy by typing "sudo apt-get install [insert DE here]" and shutting up? Quite the concept! Maybe you should try it out sometime!
LinusTechTips recently uploaded a video about the WD Computex booth, and you reminded me of what Linus said. Link (the video leads to ~1 minute before what I am talking about to give you context, if you need to you can just skip to 4:05 to see what I am talking about). The person who has a drive failure complains about it, while the one who does not will keep their mouth shut and let the circlejerk do its thing. Likewise, the people who hate Unity are very vocal about it, while those who enjoy using it stay out of the way to avoid the witch hunt that always seems to happen whenever someone says "I like Unity" on a website not primarily about Ubuntu (in a good light, of course-anti-Ubuntu websites have nothing but hate for Unity). This leads people to a false conclusion that Unity sucks, as they only hear about how it is bad, rarely about how it is good.
I try not to rant, but it is people like you who push me over the edge. All you do is claim how Ubuntu is to Linux like Satanists are to Christians (and apparently there is Ubuntu Satanic Edition, for those who have ever wondered), but never provide well thought-out explanations to justify your claims. It's essentially making up a religion out of thin air and claiming it's the one true religion because "my deity told me, therefore it is fact and you must respect it." Stop trying to cram opinions down other people's throats like it has been proven by science and everyone should know it. I have no problem with people who dislike Unity, but I will respond to people who do nothing but hate like they are hired by M$ to debase Ubuntu.
Backups are amazing. 99% of data loss can be prevented by spending less than $100 on an external drive.
If you have seen an error, there is a good chance someone else has, too. Google is your friend.
