Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu

Ars Technica once again provides us with an in-depth Ubuntu review:

If you've been following the Linux world at all, you know this has been an entire year for spring cleaning. Early in 2017, Canonical stopped work on its homegrown Unity desktop, Mir display server, and its larger vision of 'convergence' - a unified interface for Ubuntu for phones, tablets, and desktops.

And now almost exactly six years after Ubuntu first switched from GNOME 2 to the Unity desktop, that has been dropped, too. The distro is back to GNOME, and Canonical recently released Ubuntu 17.10, a major update with some significant changes coming to the popular Ubuntu Linux operating system.

In light of the GNOME switch, this release seems like more of a homecoming than an entirely new voyage. But that said, Ubuntu 17.10 simultaneously feels very much like the start of a new voyage for Ubuntu.

Obviously you don't follow the topic, I pointed the two bugs here : http://www.osnews.com/thread?651535


Obviously, you don't even read the links you posted:

https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=39985#c4

Dated 20170725:
Marek Polacek has been posting patches to the gcc-patches mailing list towards solving this


Does that sound like "no one's working on this we're all just sitting around doing nothing"?



So you keep proving my point. You have a presupposed conclusion that you'll push and push and have no interest in being proven wrong because you have already decided on a conviction.

Dated '20170725' but still missing from the latests releases as the 'const' bug remains. It's not like no one worked on it, but the effect of any correction so far remains to be seen IRL.

Btw, Microsoft received a bug report in an obscure office component relating to formula edition and corrected it in 10 days, binary patching a 17 yo software they obviously lost the source.

Not same priorities, not same effectiveness.

So? Your argument was that it's laziness. Laziness means no one is bothered working on it. The evidence shows you're wrong.

You lose.
