Why has the 16.04 xubuntu version been made so inferior to previous
issues ? I am finding I have to continuously return to previous versions
for a reasonable operating system. One very simple example is the
software available on the ubuntu software centre. Not only are the
options available poor, but the means of accessing what is available
abysmal. Another serious problem is the poor availability of web
searching programs. Both Chrome and Google make demands before their
use, and it is difficult to understand what has happened to Midori and
how it is to be used. Where have all the rest gone ?
There seems to be a dumbing down gradually occurring. I am sorry to
criticise, but the problem is that past xubuntu versions were superb and
their operation intuitive. Comparisons may be odious but so is 16.04.
15.04 etc wasn't much better. Failure to support previous versions will
eventually drive users to other operating systems; or is that the objective?
