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.

More than 8 years to do it, I call this laziness.


If it was the only bug in the queue, then yes.

The bug was found in 4.4.0. GCC is now at 6, with many OTHER bugs fixed along the way.

Like I said, you lose, but you were never going to accept anything else other than your foregone conclusion.

You've already got no more legs to stand on. Keep exposing yourself as a hack if you want.

And you keep excusing open source projects, even though my main grief was the slowness of fix, pretending no one works on GCC, or are incompetent, or bugzilla is ineffective to describe and track bugs, that shouldn't be there in the first place because open source, wada wada.

More than 8 fucking years to solve a tracked critical bug. Be it Microsoft to have showed such lightness on the subject, I'm pretty sure you've been of the ones going thermonuclear on them.

I'm fed up with FOSS pretending being the panacea to free the world from evil corporations and their nasty closed source software, yet incapable to keep up with steady yet simple quality check. That you keep failing to understand this simple fact just shows how much you are mentally dissonant. Just like your freetard brotherhood.

Yes I know that's your agenda. That's why I understood no reason will ever be good enough for you. A bug open for eight years? Laziness. Oh, someone has actually been working on it? Still laziness. Any answer anyone could have been given and you won't accept it.

Because you're not interested in facts. You're just interested in pushing your talking point.

And you keep excusing open source projects


No I'm not. I'm arguing this specific case which you won't ever accept any answer other than laziness.

Just like your freetard brotherhood.


You lose.
