On the other hand I tried a CentOS install, but the kernel was so old (3.10 for crying out loud) that it didn't recognize several recent hardware. I saw that and installed kubuntu over it.
What they should do is lower the noise threshold on all new cars AND MOTORBIKES, and if makers can't match that, then so be it (just like new pollution levels), you don't make them anymore. Yeah, I moved to a home next to a road last year and I've grown to HATE motorbikes.
I will add a related story: as a contractor I worked in a place that needed constant coordination from another place with a 5 hour time difference. So the powers that be decided: "simple, we'll put them on the same time as us". Except that now we had to wake up and start work in complete darkness right at the time when it was the coldest time of day. And when I say 'cold' I mean it, it was -50C after breakfast when you where supposed to be working outside. And it would be a balmy -10C when we were supposed to go to bed. After a few days everybody started getting up later and later and refusing to answer calls in the 'morning'. We'd have breakfast at 13:00 and work till 22:00. The next year they let us have our own timezone and live according to it.
Stupidity, like virtue, is its own reward.
