This does NOT go towards making a good impression :-(

What's most odd to me about this, is that clearly it works for the vast
majority. Why is your automatic assumption that it is not the hardware, or
configuration, but "something is wrong with Ubuntu." rather than something
a little more reasonable like "something is wrong with trying to install
Ubuntu on this machine" and trying to figure out why that is? Have you gone
through what's in dmesg's output?

As an aside, If you don't like Ubuntu, or just a part of it, there are
other good options out there. For example, while I persinally can't stand
the Unity interface, a lot of people do seem to like it. UbuntuStudio is
thus my primary platform. It gives me a lot of software I would normally
have to install later, lacks Unity, etc. I'm sure you don't mean to, but
you come across slightly miffed or something.
