Okay. With these (only expert should see the selection of if use network for 
downloading; and Update-manager has the option of selecting the source/s of 
apt-get) I think that ubuntu will be better, considerably.

I'm glad that you think the same as me and overall that you worry about 
improve ubuntu with excellent hardware detection and what dialogs appear in 

Specially I want to thank your collaboration and polite with me, a simple

[difficult] way" instead of try to solve the problem when I ask for improve 
in some  way software.

Thank you very much,

PS: Now only remains implement these... ;-)
