    There a really simple way to solve that problem, don't use the software centre. ;-D

    I so agree with that. My partner in the end insisted that I get rid of Ubuntu and put Win7 on her PC, despite my protestations.

    Finally, I hate Ubuntu-fanboys who can't accept that Ubuntu is not perfect for some people.
    It's probably the main reason it will remain a wannabe. (The fanboys, I mean)

    BTW, I changed to Linux Mint some time ago. There's not much to dislike anymore, IMO. Maybe the Ubuntu crew ought to pay attention...

    Re: Things that you hate in Ubuntu

    ENDLESS cycles of low-level work. I have to boot from the alternate install CD and rebuild my video driver manually almost every time a minor kernel revision comes through on Ubuntu 11.10. I've fixed the same, subtle NIC driver problem over and over again.

    Admittedly, I push the envelope a bit with my NVidia 460 graphics card, my RAID1 storage, and my need for the 64-bit version of the OS (which runs GROMACS significantly faster). Also, it appears that the NIC on my motherboard is a particularly quirky one. Also, these problems are pretty recent developments for me. I've been with Ubuntu since 6.06, with simpler hardware configurations, and I had few problems. Even 11.10 gives me no serious trouble on my seven year-old laptop.

    But on my desktop machines... sigh. I tried installing 12.04 on my desktop device a few months ago, and the system hanged DURING the installation, so that's not a solution for me. Perhaps 12.04.1 will solve that problem, I'm not sure yet.

    I'm here on Ubuntu Forums today because my desktop system crashed AGAIN after a kernel upgrade... and this time, recompiling the video driver did not solve the problem.

    Edit: one last thing I hate about Ubuntu: the fact that the nomodeset boot option is not the DEFAULT. Just today, once again, I thought that I couldn't even boot Ubuntu 11.10 from the CD! No, I just have to remember to pop out to the boot options menu that that cryptic logo is SUPPOSED to remind you to visit... and then, you have to remember to select nomodeset if you needed it to get your system to boot the last time...

    If you mean Unity; there is an option to turn off overlay scrollbars.

    exactly the same here (12.04).
    yes, i do want all the "full-powered" apps that come with ubuntu but i certainly do not want the DE - give me functionality NOT flash!
    surely it's not asking a lot for the install process to offer:

    do you want to waste a lot of the machine resources that you've
    paid for or would you rather simply have something that works?

    i know which i would choose!

    Well, I have to say Unity. Or actually, the fact that 12.04 is a lot less customizable than before. I just hate that they got rid of all that. Yes, I know there are alternative options, but that's not the idea.

    Lack of any aciveX alternative.

    I have a surveillance camera that uses active X so I can remotely view it online.

    I've heard all the security excuses and the proprietary excuses, but I mean really, there has to be some alternative to simply viewing a fricking picture on the internet without the activeX.
