Sure, that's more than obvious. I neither fiddled with network  
settings nor with keyboard settings, so the only conclusion is,  
Ubuntu introduced that on it's own. Due to an unfortunate point in  
time when automatic upgrades were pulled, due to a specific hardware  
combination, whatever.

The problem is, I have to care about this at all. Ubuntu is meant to  
be usable by end users and such people don't even know what a  
keyboard mapping is, much less they know how to fix it. If they see  
the wrong characters printed on key presses, they go back to Windows.

Sorry for being so egocentric here. I can't speak for Ubuntu in  
general, just for the experience of me and three friends I  
recommended Ubuntu to.
