Friends don't let friends install ubuntu !!

ubuntu is just a frozen snapshot of debian sid, ubuntizied so it's not compatible (binary) with debian anymore.

Ubuntu exists for profit and lazy people who don't want to set up "what they want in a desktop OS"

Pretty funny post IMHO

No, ubuntu sucks because it is nothing more than a six month snapshot of debian, ubuntized to make it binary non-compatible with debian goes against debian's DFSG (Debian Free Software Guidelines)

ubuntu is the aol of linux

But, choice is a good thing, I don't use, nor will ever use a watered down debian distro.

Just because ubuntu comes with codec's and *such* don't mean you can't install it in debian proper using apt-get update && apt-get install "whatever", notice no sudo bullshit

""How "user friendly" is an OS with such piss poor design that features Windows has for over a decade""

Hmm, perhaps another college educated person ?

It really amazes me

How anyone with any type of a pea sized brain that knows anything about computers (yes, even so called "retail" personal) and yet, has the "balls" to compare windows and linux

Yes, I do consider you a troll, a troll that has no clue why ?

Why ?

I actually AIN't going to go any further, I barely thought you credible before, but this post was the funniest I have ever seen , especially from a "business person"

You see, the difference between YOUR challenge and My challenge is mine works

Be thankful you have a choice, I choose Linux it works for me

That is my choice and I am happy

It's not your choice and your happy

Over the years here, reading your posts made me wonder .....

This thread was excellent it really shows how ... you really are

In fact, I wouldn't let you touch anything electronic with a billion foot pole.

How you ever got by in so called "retail" "system builder"

I have no clue, I would not go to you even for free, your criteria of measurement does not measure up to me

You my son, yes, I can say son, cause you are young, have lost what little respect I had for you to begin with

You have lost cause of plain old stupidity

plain & simple

I do have to say, you are one of the best trolls I have seen on ./

I have never seen someone as unhappy as you, being a retailer and all, maybe it's time for a new line of work

Ubuntu on the other hand would be my last choice as a linux distro to use/install, it is the AOL/Windows of linux

I for one, don't even count ubuntu as a distro, it is nothing but a frozen snapshot of debian, bastardized and not even debian binary compatible.

Friends don't let friends install ubuntu

And, for fuck's sake, change the retarded application naming methods! When you have Guayadeque, a music player using wxWidgets then "abcde" which is a frontend for "cdparanoia" (SERIOUSLY???), Gedit (which works under KDE, so the "G" is stupid), Kate (wtf is this name for a fucking Text Editor?), Kopete (bitch, please!), XCDRoast (because the "X" really MUST be there!), then you can't hope that Joe Sixpack would be happy with that. "The KDE naming convention (KMail, KAIM, KPlayer, etc) tends to be a bit better than average, though they do tend to take the âoeKâ thing a bit too far. Even this, which tends to produce easy to discern names, has problems (k3b, Kaffeine, amaroK, kynaptic, etc) and can get confusing at times." (from here: When you get rid of this hacker-wannabe naming methods ("yeah, um, well, I'm using xkcd-1.3.1-x86-omg-wtf-bbq") then you start to mature and think of customers, rather than just your fellow hacker-wannabe-bros.

Why don't you start making the packages yourself, then you can name them whatever you want
