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.

I'll repeat what I said elsewhere:

UBUNTU IS NOT LINUX!

Canonical is known for crappy bugs!

Try openSUSE, it's much more solid. Or even Mint, I've heard, which is based on Ubuntu, but is more solid and easier to use.

People have to stop thinking that a crappy OS like Ubuntu is all there is to Linux!
