  1. Re: Anyone else having issue with getdeb repo?

    I have had problems for weeks so I deleted it. You should look into repos for the individual software that you need getdeb for. IIRC I read that getdeb and medibuntu are finished. No more updates.

    Re: The one pet peeve I have about Unity

    Wow! How many posters have to complain about this bar before somebody fixes it? How hard can that be? Maybe Canonical should run a crowdfunding compaign to hire a programmer to fix it. I see a record...

    Re: Has Ubuntu lost it's Ubuntu?

    The new Canonical OS is designed for content consumption. That's my opinion. You have the option of ignoring me. If you present an argument I have the option of responding. If you present a poor...

    Re: Has Ubuntu lost it's Ubuntu?

    No I don't. I think it's quite clear that it isn't. I have separate x-screens on Mate 13 for example, I can maximize many windows, use workspaces, see all the buttons, etc,. all right out of the box....

    Re: Has Ubuntu lost it's Ubuntu?

    TY. I have discovered that. It relly looks challenging. I might install a second copy of Mate just in case where I can learn how to use FVWM. Years of PEBCAK have made me cautious in my old age. LOL

    Re: Has Ubuntu lost it's Ubuntu?

    Re: Has Ubuntu lost it's Ubuntu?

    I think after reading the critique of MS 8 by the usablity expert my opinion has changed. I would argue that Ubuntu has beeen redesigned for content consumption not primarily for touch screens. I...

    I started with Amiga so I am used to that. Switching to MS ME was a nightmare.

    I had the attitude that I would adapt just as I have adapted to various MS and Linux OSs, but the changes to Ubuntu seem to make it unsuitable for a desktop IMHO and experience. I found this article...

    Re: Has Ubuntu lost it's Ubuntu?

    I'm not a programmer. I'm a user. I have no idea what a 'dock' is but saying Unity is 'just a' dock or whatever is just a minimization of my criticism.

    I use Mint Mate. When I want to go online I...

    Referring to the original post.

    I think it's important for people or companies to honestly explain their motivations when they come under the fire that Ubuntu has because of Unity and now Mir.

    I use Mint Mate. I keep checking back with Ubuntu to see if they have fixed their problems yet so I can use it again. Apparently I'm wasting my time.
