Re: What's with all the hate against Ubuntu?
A lot of it is "Tall poppy syndrome": When you become successful, people resent your success and want to cut you down.
And the rest of it is irrational hate from former users who thought Ubuntu was going to stay exactly the same the rest of their lives: "As soon as I saw Unity on my desktop instead of the old familiar Gnome, I erased it and installed Linux Mint Mate!".
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
