    HI Bleading edge daredevils; I would like to see more drivers implemented. I often get a popup for additional drivers and it is always the nvidia, with two options and most of the time the recommended one is already active. However I do have "and it is recognized in the usb devices" a usb wireless device, a cisco/linksys ae1000 that is supported in Fedora. I would like to see that device get recognized like my printer does and get a message that it is searching for a driver, then install it, just like the printer....

    Too much to ask?

    • GIMP 2.8 in main repos
    • Gnome Boxes
    • Google Drive client

    I'm sure I'll think of more...

    1) Easy configurable Dash with much more options for tweaking
    2) All desktop effects to be easily and safely configurable from Compiz

    That's the main things, stability is more than OK for me!

    Ubuntu 12.04 is seriously lacking in polishing!!! Having done a dist upgrade on my machine the Unity stuff seems to freak out the background image and the tooltip things from the launcher become all gobbildy-gook. Everything is ok after a clean start but then degrades rapidly - mostly after only using Firefox. Not providing an advanced screensaver is a big mistake IMO.

    I have a user base of around 300 desktops on 11.04 and would like to upgrade at some point in the near future but my users will throttle me if I give them 12.04 as it currently stands. I am a 100% Linux convert but still think that the various desktop offerings are way behind the Windows and OSX ones when evaluating the 'small' things. Often with a user it is the 'small' things that make the difference and lead to them either hating or loving a platform. As a techie I tend to ignore these things for the bigger picture but it sure makes my life a misery when trying to convince an average user to join me on my quest.

    Come on developers, more attention to detail please.

    What does this actually mean>

    1. Bring it to the cutting edge.
    More than enough people want Ubuntu to stay as it was. It is too late for that. In many ways Ubuntu is at the cutting edge. Ubuntu phones, Ubuntu touch tablets, Ubuntu TV, Ubuntu on rack-ready 48-node 192- core ARM server (shown at UDS yesrday)

    Part of the answer to this

    3. More public input and updates.
    is - get involved in this

    http://summit.ubuntu.com/uds-q/

    There are blueprints for everything being discussed and it is possible to add comments/suggestions for discussion.

    The blueprints are the basis for what the developers try to achieve during each development cycle.

    Regards.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    1. Multi-Dimensional Mouse Worm-holeing to overlayed shuffling icons.
    2. Virtual, switchable desktops without log-off or re-boot from Unity Launcher.
    3. In situ kernel popping and dumping.
    4. Vertical rolling of compiz cube.
    5. Workable and Comprehensive customizable GRUB Desktop.
    6. Kernel ramming virtual environment for beta testers.
    7. Suspendable background embedded desktops that are dumpable.



    Other than that .. Unity rocks !
