Launchpad - at :https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu This is not
somewhere I usually lurk but it was so overwhelmed that I thought I'd

clean install, and were fairly simple ones because the desktop is so

I agree, but the problem is so widespread and well distributed that I
don't think it is going to get fixed. I think it is a product of the
very high level of change between the distributions.

All manner of things varying from no control of sound, no sound at all,
Libreoffice not working, bookmarks missing - to be honest just about
everything you can think of. As well as that there were various crash
messages that nearly got fixed .... I saw some of this and mentioned it
on the list a few days ago. Upgrading to 12.04 is disastrous. I
actually wonder if anyone has succeeded.
