Removed Feature Impact Quality of Ubuntu

I've decided to give Ubuntu another chance.  I love the distro,
nothing else compares, and using something else just felt like i'd
taken a trip back in time 10 years.  My experience with both Mandriva
2010 and MEPIS Linux has shown me just how far Ubuntu has come, how
more ahead of the curve Ubuntu is.  The Monitor Detection issue is a
serious problem and does need addressing.  I'm going to join the Gnome
list and see what I can do about getting something done towards fixing
it.  Its an issue which should have been corrected long ago.  Perhaps
I can get someone to make a better randr frontend that can be used to
change your monitor hardware settings.  I have no programming
expertise at all.  I'm going to be learning Java.  The last time I
programmed was in ANSI-C on an old Unix minicomputer 15 years ago, and
I've dabbled a little in Perl.  I don't know anything about Mono,
Python or Qt.

Thank you all.  I'll give G. Bowman's suggestion a try.
