Okay, my browser crashed the first time I posted this - no I won't say which one!
Would be interesting to see where people started on *nix before Linux. I started on IRIX (computer animator.) Whatever....
I like to try other distros out but I doubt I'll ever change. So easy, and always just like I want it.
I found this via google. Fairly interesting.
Since it happens on my Firefox installs, too, I'm going to guess that the percentage of affected users needs to be much higher than 24-26%.
Okay, I guess you are saying that there is less height for icons. That is true, though it seems to be the exact opposite thing that I usually hear people complaining about. More configurability would definately be better.
[...] The unity dock needs to have the ability to switch to the bottom of the screen rather than the side (where on widescreen monitors we have the least amount of space). [...]
Are you saying that on a widescreen monitor there is less width? That doesn't seem right... or am I misunderstanding you?
Do they really want people following links with even less information than they have now?
It still shows the url on hover, however now it does it in the address bar. Takes a bit of cramming to fit it up there though, so it isn't ideal.
For those okay with using a browser which is under heavy development, Midori is another great option.
It's my main browser on my eeepc for its RAM savings and it has been great. I've been using the PPA (note you also need the Webkit PPA in Ubuntu 9.04 and has been very stable. Many features are missing, however, it is maturing very quickly. Keep firefox around, though, as Midori has had issues with a few sites.
Interesting. The ruby metrics gave me a laugh. A steady rise around 2008 and a steady decline afterwards. Of course it isn't scientific data, but it does seem to coincide with the surge (and subsequent apathy) over Ruby on Rails by many developers.
No offense to the rubyists out there
Unfortunately there are a few negatives, too. Thanks to the new kernel there is no realtime audio support for my Ubuntu Studio install and my laptop nvidia drivers would get switched to the non 3d open source nv drivers.
So neither of my personal computers are getting upgraded which is unfortunate. I was looking forward to the Gnome updates and the newer officially supported apps.
