    If you prefer the old style desktop (like 10.04) then Ubuntu Mate is what you want.

    I see that most of the threads you started have replies trying to help you, yet you never responded to them.

    Maybe systemd is something I "shouldn't" like. I left my beloved Xubuntu for awhile after reading a bunch of panc-posts about systemd-guided Robotic Overlords taking over the whole Linux universe. I'm back on Xubu again, because, well, it just works, better and more simply than any other distro I've tried. It's not the fastest (Salix gets that award for my experience, but it's not simple or easy for a busy Ba'aku boy who is scared of technology), but it's the distro I always run home to.

    The ever present launcher bar - hate it. I know you can hide it but that's annoying. When Ubuntu said they were moving to Gnome I though "yay, no more launcher bar". The meta key doesn't open apps either, only search. In stock Gnome, the meta key opens the apps view.

    That's adjustable via Settings.

    I've noticed this, too, now that I have Debian on the desktop and Ubuntu on the laptop.

    Since I upgraded to 18.04 programs as a rule open slower. :/

    I don't like the graphical Ubuntu software store.
    It is slow
    It lies on the size of the programs
    Some are installed twice opera,VLC ???
    The real name of some programs is sometimes hidden (Totem)
    It keeps asking for passwords.

    I know VLC, Thunderbird, and a few others have two listings in the store. One for Snap and one for Deb. The installer shouldn't install both unless you tell it to. I was going to mention Firefox, but it looks like the deb version of it has been removed from Software. Software doesn't even show I have Firefox installed, because I have the deb.

    Xubuntu doesn't ship with Synaptic installed. I have to install it myself via the terminal. It's sooooo much easier than the software store, and it's all debs, nice 'n' safe.
