Comment Re:Thanks Ubuntu, but I'll stay with 12.04 for now (Score 1) 177

Yeah, it's fun to tinker with each new Ubuntu release using a live CD or VM, but a pain in the ass to need to upgrade the OS on a production computer every six months. Something inevitably gets altered, broken, removed or replaced. You can never fully get used to everything. Canonical likes to adopt new technologies before they're ready and then drop perfectly functional ones on a whim, and that's fine for people who like to have the latest and (arguably) greatest.

So, I stuck Xubuntu 12.04 on my laptop, got it configured just the way I like it, and will happily not waste time with installation and configuration for another four years.
