    Hi, I'm human, I complain. It's what we do. *points to you complaining about my complaining*

    I will be looking at the mini iso you both mentioned. Speaking of complaining none of the usbs I made work, think I formatted them wrong. That's what happens when you're up for two days....I should have never bought that french press and bean grinder followed by the big bag of Colombian beans. So much for hightened security, big suspicious package arrives in the UK from Colombia filled with plant matter - totaly untouched by customs, not for the first time...Unless they're watching me

    If you'd still like that list here it is, bare in mind I've probably broken something (another reason it's better to add to rather than take away) but I'm using a live cd so I don't mind:

    I think that's most of it. The list of things you want and need will probably be slightly different too, the descriptions are all there in synaptic. I do that after getting synaptic and adobe flash from ubuntu software center. There's a few missed off there that I get rid of straight away like zeitgeist-datahub & geoclue

    Re: Oh my, Ubuntu how you've changed

    I also believe Canonical is going the wrong way.
    (and so I switched to Arch Linux which is great because it gives you freedom and vanilla cutting edge software.)

    But it is not only me:
    See this old Community cafe thread in which the success of each ubuntu release is compared via google trends:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=310509
    http://google.com/trends?q=ubuntu+ho...o=all&date=all

    Unfortunately, Trends is limited to 5 objects, but look what happens when you just compare the LTS + raring:
    http://www.google.com/trends/explore...0raring&cmpt=q

    Watching Ubuntu alone makes it only slightly better:
    http://www.google.de/trends/explore?...=ubuntu&cmpt=q

    It is really sad seeing them going the wrong way.
    Linux for beginners: Good idea!
    Taking away freedom from the user and releasing strange patched version of software with bugs it didn't had in the first place (I only say: gksu gedit...): Bad idea!

    Maybe less people are searching google for help. There are just too many variables. I still run all of the same softwares on my system that I have been running since the beginning. I do not see the wrong in making Linux easier for beginners. It gives a viable alternative to Windows and Mac. ubuntu gives you all of the same freedoms, but people pretend to be blind to that.
    Thank you for your contributions. "So long and thanks for the fish!"
