No, there are "so many bugs" because all software has bugs.
Bugs, Oops, Dam , Heck what happened. Shudder bugs,
This bugs me.
There is one distro I have trusted to sort out Bugs, and it be fairly automated, but not in as seconds or minutes.
So if you reading this thread , then you are connected, time will tell.
Bug disappears = a job well done. Kernel fails after update "Safe Mode", If that fails , back to live install.
if Live install fails , Squeal like a pig . There again if Live Install work first time, !!!!!, so not.
Sometimes Developers of Software do not keep in touch. Remember most do so FOC. don't forget about TGTLTGE.
read the info as regards what you are installing , or what you have installed, is it supported by Ubuntu ?
It be amazing what info the Software Centre provides.
Everything on a plate does not exist , on this side or any other
PS, the Spell-check still can't Recognise , "Ubuntu" , Now that be a bug of all bugs
Two tin cans are better than an iphone
simple answer as to why there are bugs..... Ubuntu is a leading edge distro....
if you don't want to see bugs... stick to LTS, and only upgrade to the next when the one your on in near end of support...
For example you should still be using 10.04 and upgrade to 12.04 around April next year then onto 14.04 around April 2017... that is if you really hate bugs.
For example my Desktop is running 12.04... I am happy to deal with bugs.... but on the Netbook which both my wife and I use is still running 10.04

So if they're upset about getting snowed under, maybe they need to stop advertising that bug reports is a good way to give back.

My personal preference is to first ask around in the relevant forum and only then to file a bug if the consensus is that there's really a bug and that it hasn't been reported so far.
Or we welcome all attempts and strive to make the system as idiot proof as possible?!
In case there's some misunderstanding, let me rephrase.
- I think there's something wrong with the OS, or app.
- I post my observation and ask people whether others have the same experience. And if so, whether they know whether a relevant bug exists.
- In case it needs mentioning, Launchpad has a feature that enables a person to indicate whether a bug affects them too.
- If the response generally is that there is a problem and that a bug should be filed, then I'm willing to do so.
That is what I meant by: "My personal preference is to first ask around in the relevant forum and only then to file a bug if the consensus is that there's really a bug and that it hasn't been reported so far."
I totally fail to see how a response such "only let people that have been certified as being able to do this successfully file bugs (like after passing a 6 hour written test to prove your competence)..." is applicable.
It maybe that my understanding of the English language isn't adequate but I find it hard to appreciate your opinion on my opinion in a positive light.
