unlike you, I'm fairly new to (X)ubuntu, I thought I liked it but, I've
realised, what I really like is Xfce.
like Ron, I'm not put off by the occasional bug or problem, but I spent
a lot of time over the last few weeks removing stuff instead of just
working, and still haven't managed to sort out my mount.cifs problem.
I think the difference between us is that I expect a *NIX system to be
stable and dependable; software gets upgraded and tweaked, yes, but one
doesn't expect to have to re-install. it is always possible that some
upgrade breaks a system, but then you'd restore from a backup rather
than doing a completely fresh install.
it's mostly about forethought. like not top posting because it makes
following the conversation difficult and cumbersome.
