Hi, I just installed the latest version of Ubuntu and I can't say I am happy about it. It deleted my Windows setup without warning, it hangs when I try to install a simple program like macchanger and it seems that the console is nowhere to be found. Same as Synaptic. For the record, I did create a partition to install Ubuntu on. The only thing they have succeeded to do is attempt to look like a failed Windows clone in my humble opinion, disposing of all the nice things Linux has to offer and replacing it with useless junk. I don't care about the cloud, I don't want to be a text writer when I use Linux, don't need a link to the calc on my desktop and don't appreciate the workspaces as they are now on my 15" screen. I won't claim to know what I am doing with Linux but I have used Ubuntu in the past and it wasn't anything like it is now. Before, I had it set up in multiboot without any serious problems, the console was available in two clicks and it never crashed. (Same pc) Now it even managed to download slower than Windows while it used to be faster, on the same connection... I didn't check any further yet, already decided this OS has to go. I would use BT before I would use this %$#@. Unless they improved. The current version of Ubuntu sucks! /rant I have a very simple question really: Is there anything out there that sort of works like Ubuntu 9? You know, simple, usable, no clutter, respect for your system... The things one would expect. Any help would be appreciated.
