Agreed, but I plan to switch probably to pure Debian once the updates stop coming for 10. Shuttleworth can take his Unity and shove it. Ubuntu is getting far too full of itself and has become unwilling to listen to the people who actually use it IMO.

What don't you like about Ubuntu 10? I think it was a good improvement over 9...
Still running Ubuntu Server 10.04.1 LTS on my server. Seems to be running OK to me.
You've got Server, little bit of a different situation. I was referring to my headaches with X/Gnome/Unity in 10. I've never had to deal with so many fundamentally broken packages and strong-arming of UI decisions as I had with Unity. Since I was using it on my netbook, I tried to do things to maximize my screen space. Compiz has this really nice setting where you can make the titlebar of any window expand into the top bar and appear within it if you fullscreen an application. Completely fucked if you're using 10. Metacity is combined with Gnome, Maximus, Compiz and Unity in ways that things are too easy to break and don't repair themselves when you purge conf files and force reinstallation of packages. It's probably the most egregious example of dependency hell I've come across.
Took me forever to sort it out and... that's the only reason I'm still using it, still trying to feel like I got my return on investment. When it comes to UIs and OSes, that's a BAD sign. Especially for a free one.

I use Linux for 2 servers and a couple really old drone folding machines. I'd use it full time on the desktop, but I need Adobe Suite and Abelton Live and WINE just doesn't cut it. I am contemplating using Ubuntu on a laptop full time as I use my desktop for the tools mentioned. I've been able to ween myself off MSOffice, even though I think it's the best tool, and use LibreOffice and Google Docs. I think Linux will have a good future on tablets.I got 7. Just got rid of Ubuntu, too much of a pain. Went and did round one of the test and got a 7 there too. Guess I'm just not cut out for penguins... þ
