Treating users as idiots is not a policy, it's a mistake.
As soon as I find a distribution worth installing everywhere, I'll be
switching. Mint doesn't cut the mustard. I'm a Kubuntu/Lubuntu user on
desktop and Ubuntu server  but I don't want to anymore, I don't want
to have anything with Ubuntu products.

I know the PR spin, "it's to make new users' life easy" yada yada
yada. But the new users don't discover Linux all by themselves, in
most cases someone shows them and I don't want to show and talk about
Ubuntu to anyone anymore.
