    2. GNOME is evil
    3. I'm with you here. Crust should be thick!

    5. Not rolling release. Deal with it or use a different distro.
    6. GNOME again
    7. I didn't even get a t-shirt. Feel lucky.

    My touchpad freezes when I lose my network. Weird side effect that makes the problem even worse.
    Could you elaborate on this? I have no idea what you're talking about

    1. The use of meta packages. This makes it hard to uninstall certain apps without uninstalling the whole gnome desktop. Its also bad from a resource use stand point and slows Ubuntu down as it loads unnecessary things into memory.

    ...

    4. Ugly Brown theme, nuff said.
    Seconded. I never really understood meta packages in the first place.

    There's nothing I hate about Ubuntu. It's a great distro.

    That said, I prefer Arch.

    Re: Things that u hate in Ubuntu

    In the default Ubuntu I hate the fact that they add "stupid" plugins to firefox, which I always remove. I'm talking about plugins for content, such as video files, when I want to watch a video I want to watch it in my media player, not firefox's plugin, the totem plugin, etc.. for everything else. That is one of the only annoying things with Ubuntu. Other then that, I change just about everything so those are given's, but you try removing all those plugin's in firefox. Edit > Preferences > Content > Manage

    (depends on your version, they made things easier in ff3b5)

    Yeah and this Lunix was also created by a Russian hacker named Linyos Torovoltos, before the Russians lost the Cold War. It is based on a program called "xenix", which was written by Microsoft for the US government.

    You think all distros are slower than Windows or you just don't like the ones that are?

    All linux distros run slower on my computer than say XP or Vista. I have a dual boot Vista and Ubuntu now. It doesn't stop me from running linux distros though.
