Hi there

I have had bad experiences with the last 2 versions of Ubuntu

Every  second or third update breaks something in my Linux
I seem to be continuously looking at the Ubuntu Community pages trying 
to fix another problem
Is there a way to permanently disable updates  and use a more Stable Ubuntu.

I cant use my iBurst any more on my Ubuntu so I am sending this email 
from my Windows Laptop using my iBurst modem.

My wife's machine has the Pre-Unity Ubuntu I never upgraded it since I 
installed it and she has no problems.
My file server is an older Ubuntu Workstation also a version not 
supported any more and I am very happy with it.

Last night I took a New Ubuntu CD and made a VM it was so unstable I 
could not use it  It kept on crashing. I thought Ubuntu is built on a 
very stable Kernel yet it crashes.
I tried OpenSUSE although it was stable I found that distro is not as 
user friendly as it could not automatically find my Laser printer on my 
network. Which was the reason I moved to Ubuntu

Is there a way to get Ubuntu to work with out the tears. Remove the Unity ?
Or should one  move to Kubuntu?
Can you get Kubuntu to install with the Gnome desktop ?

Some of my friends are talking of other Debian/Ubuntu  Distros I like 
Ubuntu as its South African and wish to support it

What say you how do I fix my problem?
Novel has two versions a open source version and a stable commercial 
version a bit behind the Open version but very stable.
Does Ubuntu do that ?


Kind Regards

Nico Michael
