im glad the edge did not make it and here is why
You do not listen to the community about simple things like making Unity more usable and customizable. What makes you think we want to give you money for you to have another platform you refuse to listen to us on? I liked the old Gnome 2 UI you had, it set you apart from Windows and OS X. KDE looks like Windows and now Ubuntu looks like a cheap OS X ripoff. Not to mention the fact it looks like OS X and Star Trek had a baby and BAM Unity! It is kludgy and annoying to use, and anything we say to you to improve upon goes in one ear and out the other. If I wanted to be treated like this I would go back to Windows or go buy a Mac. I choose Linux because it is customizable.
I chose Ubuntu initially because it was different from everything else, and it worked very well. Now it is the polar oposite. You only want to follow your own vision and don't want to give us what we want, so ya know what when it came time to give you what you wanted, money for development, I did not listen to you. In fact I made it my sole purpose to make sure this very fact was heard by as many people as possible. I made videos on YouTube and posted in various forums about it. I actively boycotted the Ubuntu Edge because it would have been just another platform for you to NOT listen to us on. Another platform for you to say "we are following our vision whether you like it or not!"
Not only that by default Ubuntu sells my information to whoever wants it, in this case Amazon! And who knows who else!
So I hope this is a lesson to you all, maybe in the future you can shape up and begin listening to what we want again. Maybe, just maybe, I can use Ubuntu and have a good default fully supported professional desktop, not some cheap ripoff of another product.
>inb4 gnome 2 looked like OS X, no it did not, not even close
