Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu It is that time of year again: a new Ubuntu release is upon us. The beta version of Ubuntu 8.04 was released a few days ago, so I decided to give it a try and see what new features and improvements they have shoved into this one. As always, this is as much a preview of the latest GNOME release (2.22) as it is of Ubuntu itself. Read on for the preview.

Typical answer to someone making a comment on a feature missing, very basic and important IMHO:
Do it yourself, send a patch, etc, it's OSS.

Do you mean that using OSS you should patch, report somewhere, otherwise keep your mouth mute ?

I'd just say that the tone he was using doesn't really encourage anyone else to do it for him either. So, basically, either mind your manner and ask if someone would add the feature you need, or act like a spoiled brat and add the feature yourself. Ok? ;)

Am I the only one that as the verification feature in brasero? I had to disable it with Edit-> Plugins -> md5.

It's annoying, time consuming and pretty useless these days. Burners are now reliable. Last time I had a coaster was with a 1x pioneer dvd burner, like 8 years ago.

If you use free software, that kind of answer is very common.

Why? Because the nature of free software; you receive something as it is, and you can use it, modify it to fulfill your own needs and distribute your modifications to let everyone "enjoy" your improvements.

If you do not want to share your things with the community that gives you the software, you should not use it.

If you are not technician, you could also help to improve the software you use reporting bugs, doing translations, documentation and a lot of stuff.

Bashing some software application in a destructive way (as the Original Poster did) is not helpful, it just harms.

So... I finally met that person, which is responsible for deleting that "Criticism Of Linux" section in one of the Wikipedia's articles ? ;-)
