Linux I volunteer as tech support for a small organization. For years we relied on Ubuntu on our desktops, but the users didn't like it when Ubuntu switched to the Unity interface. This article tells about our search for a replacement and why we decided on Xfce running atop Linux Mint.

Sorry but I think this as an exception to the rule.


And the rule is most people buy the computer with the OS preinstalled, which hides a lot of these problems. Hence why I only found out when I had to reinstall.

What are the real figures when we compare like with like?

Look most network hardware is generic. Stop being dick and pretending your exception to the rule is the rule.

Stop being a dick and comprehend that's not the point being made.

Stop being a dick and maybe realize the problem is more common than you might imagine (which is logically different from saying my experience is a rule), so much so that laptop and desktop manufacturers mostly provide preinstalled and recovery partitions.
