The specific issues were very often missing data, programs that had 
worked before the upgrade and either had been removed druring the 
upgrade or were broken.  there were a couple of reports of random 
crashes that locked up the system and gave no error message.  Not sure 
if the reports were accurate though.  There were times when it was a 
cop-out I agree.

But a lot of problems caused by compiz crash etc were fixed by getting 
the user to change to 2D.  A bit messy as many users had opted for no 
password at login ....  most of those were able to get the login method 
changed OK and opt for 2D.

The reason I looked at Ubuntu answers in the first place was simply to 
see where people are told to go on the Ubuntu website.  If that is no 
longer the best place to go for help, the website ought to reflect that 

Regards,        Barry.
