I googled ubuntu bugs and found this. I have to say I'm not impressed
with the thinking (or lack their of) that went in to reporting this bug.
Linux is an effective open source operating system, it is not intended
to be Nike, Apple, or Microsoft.

I also have concerns about the number of releases. Karmic was quite
buggy and I heard many people reinstalling the system. Perhaps 2 a year
is too many.

I use my computer for scientific computing and managed to make it work
with an upgrade without a reinstall. I had to disable ufw at grub.
Currently I use Karmic and I have used ubuntu since before Dapper. Prior
to that I used Gentoo, Slackware, and Debian.

I have to say it is excellent work that is done in general making Linux
available many people, but I caution that thinking about market share
has not helped Microsoft or Apple in building an effective usable
quality Operating System--it has helped them gain market share.

Best Wishes,


Microsoft has a majority market share
