 what is so bad about ubuntu?

 
 by user333 on: Jul 7 2010
 
Score 63%

I just was wondering why everyone says it is so bad. I am no "noob" that doesn't know anything about linux, and I have tested many distros, and I don't see what is so bad about ubuntu in particular.

I don't mean to offend anyone!

btw: if you are upset about earlier versions of ubuntu, I understand. I almost went back to windows because of crashes and lack of hardware support, but 10.04 is much better, and I now use it as my main os. Maybe you should try it out if you haven't lately. Ubuntu has learned a lot.

I dont think I understand you. irc.sindustries.org is running on a dedicated corenetworks server running debian lenny. Its uptime is:

11:15:35 up 266 days, 3:07, 2 users, load average: 0.09, 0.04, 0.01

Pretty damn sweet huh?

Our london server is running Arch linux, we'll see how it does.

Yes, ubuntu apparently has learned alot. Its learned that it should be trying to sync up with debian testing instead of using a debian unstable snapshot (the most unrecommended meta distro of debian to run). Im glad to see that debian isnt making this easy on them. Imo, they should do some of their own footwork and quit trying to make the debian team carry them on their shoulders. There are lots of distributions using debian testing as a base, why the hell does ubuntu think they deserve special treatment in asking for extra help in doing this? Atleast they learned that if they use debian unstable as a base(which is prone to far more broken pkgs, bugs,and crashes than debian testing) they will and have been inheriting these bugs. I must also say, they arent very quick about fixing these bugs in their releases either. Ubuntu is not the greatest OS for a beginner to use. IMO, a beginner needs an OS thats going to be reliable. Ubuntu hasnt shown that it can be yet.

You can read my other rants to know my feelings about Ubu, but this (just found) really takes the cake.

http://design.canonical.com/2010/07/the-ubuntu-font/

Seems you need to be an 'ubuntu member' for access to see the new font. So much for open source collaboration and sharing.

Ubuntu. Disgusting.

"Sometime today if you’re an Ubuntu member you’ll get an email inviting you to the private PPA with instructions"

...well I guess canonical is running out
of ideas on how to force people on using
ubuntu huh? First drivers, now fonts :D

Its getting better for sure lulz.

I can understand you hating canonical if that's your thing, but 99% of ubuntu is 99% of every other distro. I use a custom remastersis version of ubuntu tailored to my needs. IF I'd used a different distro, I would end up in the same place. It's just an OS to most people. Ubuntu suits users who upgrade a lot. I find the 6month upgrade cycle a bit annoying now, so will look into alternatives, maybe arch.

No, man, you would end up in exactly the same place.

Say I take a Ubuntu server install, load it onto my computer, apt-get myself a gnome desktop, and set up GDM, grub, etc. and the theme, just the way I like it, I would have one system. If were then to take a Debian Testing install, load that onto my computer, uncheck the "Desktop Environment" during install, and apt-get myself a gnome desktop, set up GDM, grub and all that, I would have exactly the same system (bar the distro name that's on the verbose boot prompt, and the "About GNOME" menu.) On the Ubuntu system, if I were to compile (or apt-get) gnome from the Debian repos, those systems would be indentical.

You're being extremely obsessive compulsive in this regard, especially when the name of the distro on the boot can be changed anyway. If I were to go one better, and uninstall apt, then compile yum from source, remove all references to Ubuntu (taking countless valuable hours of my life, that I will never get back), and replace them with Fedora, then compiled gnome from the Fedora packages, then placed it in front of you, I doubt even you would be able to tell the difference, without doing some extremely precise digging through the system.

Don't give me this bullshit about "I'd be able to tell right away because it's Ubuntu" or "I'd be able to tell by the computer's lag" because you can put that shit to bed right now. Take out some of the generic packages and system drivers, then delete the binary blobs, and you've got Debian Testing. Speed and stability (not necessarily packages, but you can use Debian's repos if you want as well).

You won't be able to watch movies, listen to music, or visit 90% of the sites on the web, but at least you'll be safe in the comfort that you are using free software, and are killer l33t in tw1ggz eyes.

In response to Rob (the Robin to this Batman - yes, I thought that was pretty clever as well), Canonical spends less on marketing and PR than Redhat and Novell do with their distributions. Unlike Redhat, I've never seen an advertisement for Ubuntu Server in any technology magazine, or on countless Linux related websites.

In 2006, Redhat spent a total of 4.6% of their annual revenue for that year ($1.1 billion US) on advertising, compared to Microsoft's 2.8% (to clear this up 2.8% from Microsoft's revenue, compared to 4.6% from Redhat's is night and day). Redhat's advertising spending for that year is equal to around $23 million US. Since then, Redhat's revenue has since dropped to a rather dismal $768 million US in four years.

Canonical's annual revenue is a microscopic $30 million (this is for 2010). Even if they were to spend a total of 50% of that revenue on so called PR (which would be a complete waste of money, and extremely unprofessional), it would only equal a total of $15 million US.

I used information from the following links to put this together: (yes, gentlemen, I actually research my facts)
http://saviorodrigues.wordpress.com/2006/12/07/obvious-untruths-open-source-advertising-not-necessary/
http://www.redhat.com/about/news/prarchive/2006/earnings_2006q4.html

Has anyone else noticed the trend of ubuntu users pasting ubuntu logos all over half naked women and other pictures that they didnt take and most likely dont have permission to use and releasing them under the GPL here? Do ubuntu users even know what the GPL is? Do they use it just because they saw it being used improperly on opendesktop already and think its ok or do they not know what "a gpl" is like ...I am running "a linux". Shitbird idiots.

I am going to take this oppurtunity to use this joint as a form of free advertisement. irc.sindutries.org , connect, enjoy yourselves, read the motd...

I have no unreasonable or anal rules like fascistnode aka freenode does... hope to see you all there soon. We have ircds in the USA and the UK, ssl for clients is available on port 9999, set your clients to accept self signed "invalid" ssl certs...paying for an ssl cert is unessecary and a waste of money, the level of ssl "protection" is no better if you pay for an ssl cert or just create one yourself :P
