Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu I've been an Arch user for roughly 3 years. I'm pretty much familiar with it all - The way it boots, its configuration and its package management. I've also heard a lot of good things about Ubuntu, and wanted to try it for a long time. So, two weeks ago, I took the plunge. These are my findings.

Things mentioned are not quirks, but a serious lack of polish.

I disagree. The author approach Ubuntu expecting to find ways of doing that were similar to Arch Linux, which is why he was confused (also, going from KDE to Gnome *will* make people think interfaces have been simplified to the point of uselesness.

Agreed, that's why I prefer KDE for my Linux boxes, overall it seems more flexible to power user.

Well, we agree on that at least.

Yeah, I got it. When Linux/MacOS users flood Windows topics with their "insightful" opinions about how superior their OS'es are -- it's ok and they got modded up quickly. But just mentioning Vista in Linux thread is offtopic, trolling and crime.

Let's look at this from a logical point of view. Either such trolling is good for the discussion, or bad. The fact that it's modded one way or another is irrelevant. If it's bad in Windows threads, it's similarly bad in Linux threads. Excuses such as "yeah, but other people do it" don't change this.

So you're welcome to mark Linux posts as off-topic in Windows thread (when they really are), but you also have to accept the fact that your own off-topic Windows posts in Linux threads will be modded down as well.

Look at it this way: you can either choose to elevate the debate, or contribute to the flamefest. If you choose the second, expect me and others to call you on it.
