Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Yes, yes, it's that time of the year again - a new Fiona Apple album confirmed (which makes anything that happens between now and spring 2011 irrelevant and annoying), MorphOS 2.6 released (will be the next news item), and, of course, a new Ubuntu release showcasing the best of the best that the Free software world has to offer in the desktop world.

"showcasing the best of the best that the Free software world has to offer in the desktop world."
If that's the best, then it's a sad state of affairs.

- Installer crashes
- Bootsplash doesn't work
- Multi-monitor setup doesn't work half the time
- Resuming paused audio/video skips (plays buffer twice) and audio latency is horrible
- Font rendering still sucks unless you fiddle with dpi settings and smoothing to fit that particular font - and then all other fonts will look terrible
- No automatic handling of orphaned "installed-as-dependency" packages
- Locale settings dialog crashes sometimes and other times the settings are not applied properly (crash reported)
- Translations are horrible, only English language is usable
- GNOME Panel order still not saved if multiple panels are on the same screen edge (reported in or before 2005).

The world must be out to get you personally. I haven't experienced any of the problems you mention.

have you reported bugs of these ?

and for translation, have you pointed the bad translations ? have you tried to fix them ?

We aren't speaking about a closed system, but FreeSoftware.

HA! Ubuntu used pulseaudio... which causes most of these problems. And it is soo integrated into everything if you remove it nothing will work quite right.

By the time you "fix" pulseaudio on Ubuntu you may as well install Debian or Sidux depending on which way you lean.

"- Translations are horrible, only English language is usable "

windows and osx and ubuntu are all horrible to run in swedish.
