My concern is the failed process.  Setting aside the
extraordinary decision itself, who made this decision,
what attempts did they make to solicit input from those
with Linux experience (or - on another current thread -
those with foreign language input experience) and why did
those attempts fail, how was this decision ultimately
arrived at, where is it documented, how did the decision
makers attempt to communicate this decision to Ubuntu
users, and why did those attempts fail?

We can work around any amount of crap if we know about it.
Installing a Linux distro and finding numerous poorly
documented surprises is a cause for serious concern, both
in our selection of distros for Enterprise use and in our
selection of distros to recommend to newbies.
