Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Over at the Goodbye, Microsoft web site, Brad R. takes Ubuntu to task for abandoning dial-up modem users. Apparently Ubuntu no longer includes the GnomePPP dial-up package in the distribution, without which you can't get online via dial-up. It gets better: if you do have some way to connect, when you download something from the Ubuntu repository, the first thing Ubuntu does is update its 16+ megabyte repository index. Happy waiting! Brad concludes that "Ubuntu is for broadband users only."

Of those only Steam qualifies as a repo in this context.

The default install of Chromium, for example, does not support audio and video.


You know how you lose an argument? You start to make things up and pretend they're facts. Chromium (and Chrome) supports both audio and video by default.
