Try it again without a third-party UI and watch what happens... If you're using a third-party UI your experiences with it are no longer valid. If you're happy with it that's great, and wanting others to know about it so they can be as well is awesome, but you're enabling Microsoft to pull this kind of shit.

Do you really think that's OK? It is not acceptable that such a thing is required to get basic functionality from your OS.

Imagine the uproar if Canonical removed everything except Unity from their repositories. Would you think that was OK? Sure, you could easily add a third-party repository (eg, getdeb) and get your goodies back, but you should not have to do that and that is the problem.
