by DoofusOfDeath on Mar. 30, 2012You know what bums me out? I used to get pretty excited about each new Ubuntu release.
But now, after lots of unfixed bugs, inability to successfully install a working fglrx driver, and my dislike for Unity / Gnome 3, I'm just not excited.
Ubuntu-based Mint is my current favorite, but even that inherits the bugs and driver issues that come with Ubuntu.
It's sad when I pine for the driver support that comes with Windows 7.

by an anonymous user on Mar. 31, 2012Do I really need to upgrade the whole system to get a minor update for LibreOffice? Dudes, there's something really wrong with your platform.
