Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu 12.10 has been released, sporting the rather... Interesting tagline 'Avoid the pain of Windows 8'. Two main features are that websites can now be treated as actual applications, integrating them into Unity. The divide between local and online content when searching has also been softened, which, they claim, makes it easier to find what you're looking for. On the server side, it includes the Folsom release of OpenStack, "Cinder, for block storage and Quantum, a virtual networking API. Ubuntu's Metal-as-a-Service bare-metal provisioning tool has been updated and now supports Calxeda hyperscale hardware based on ARM".

Dear Lemur2:

You have talked about your experience and also given data, some of it can be checked by anyone using a virtual machine, for example. If someone doesn't want to, there's little that we can do.

> [To "ILoveBeer":] Could you have possibly put forward a lamer [...]

There's no need to engage in personal fightings. There is a moment in discussions when you realize that the other part simply isn't listening, they have their opinion and they act like getting closer to the truth was losing. And they don't like losing.

Those conversations can be ended with something like: "I've given enough data. Arguing with someone that doesn't listen is futile. My time is more valuable than this. This conversation ends there." or just "I've given enough data. Going on this way is futile there. My time is more valuable than this. This conversation ends there." and you peacefully ignore whatever is dumped later there. Anyway, practically nobody reads those conversations up to those nested levels; it's better to give some data in the first levels of discussions, where someone reads them.

Doing otherwise will convert "reading news" in "a harmful time sink". Lately you seldom write in Osnews, some of us have missed for months your informed comments, it's better to write for us all instead of for someone who doesn't listen or... for someone worst:

"I submitted an article and trolled Lemur2 upto 300 comments."

Don't get caught, please, cut the conversations when they arrive to the third level or so, do it for us. Your time is better spend talking for everyone instead of for someone who doesn't listen.

Thanks for your comments!

When he stops listing google results for alternatives ... we stop with the personal attacks.

Name a desktop application applicable to most users, and I will show you a screenshot of a functional equivalent (or better) running on my desktop.
