X11, Window Managers Over the past couple of months, and especially over the past couple of weeks, I've been working very hard to write and complete my thesis. I performed all the work on Windows 7, but now that the thesis is finally done, submitted, and accepted, I installed Ubuntu - and immediately I was reminded of why I do not do any serious work on Linux: the train wreck that is X.org.

Canonical doesn't test anything. Period.

A few releases ago they had an installer that would not let you leave the mount points screen. What does that say? That the installer WAS NOT TESTED AT ALL! No way that bug could have slipped by with ANY testing.

Use OpenSUSE. Rock solid compared to the xBuntus. Only problem I have with it is occasionally a screwup in the updater applet (NO distro gets updating RIGHT!), and Firefox can crash KWin periodically (which does NOT lead me to start ranting about how Linux can learn from Windows.)
