Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu During my 8 years of Linux on and off usage I have tried more distros than I have chocolate bars. Each one of my previous encounters meant that I had to spend at least 2 days configuring before I have a desktop that I was somewhat comfortable with. With Ubuntu Feisty Fawn's latest test beta --for the first time ever-- this was not the case. I was up and running with all the niceties I wanted within 2 hours.

> Eh? Excuse me? I've probably used Linux a whole lot more than you, and probably know a lot more about it.

Apparently you are not a very good Linux user and don't have a clue most of the time what you are doing.

You are bitching about Ubuntu and telling people that it sucks because it doesn't suit your needs. The majority Linux users don't have your needs. Ubuntu is not missing stuff because most people don't require those arcane software packages like you do. When they can get Ubuntu up and running in less than an hour with everything working, Ubuntu is already better than everything else that exists out there.

So yes, the Linux community don't need people like you. You can go back to Windows as long as you want, and nobody will miss you.

tsk tsk. I'm quite competent at using GNU/Linux thank you very much.

I didn't say that Ubuntu sucked for everyone, I said that it doesn't suit my needs and that Linux in general doesn't work for me because of a variety of current issues (and that I hoped that those issues would get solved, so that I could return to using GNU/Linux).

Photoshop CS2 is not arcane, I'd wager a solid bet than more people use Photoshop than use GNU/Linux ;-) Other software such as Canon's DPP, or Capture One Pro are lesser used, although a lot of people have Canon digital cameras these days (DPP is also used with Canon digital compacts, not just DSLRs).

I personally detest Microsoft Windows for a variety of reasons, so please don't make me out to be a Windows troll, which I am most certainly not. If you want to be a Linux troll, go for it, I need a good laugh from time to time :-)
