Hmm.. after almost 2 years, I decided to try the new cool “polished” Ubuntu 12.10.
Keep in mind – I was using Ubuntu for over 4 years, on very advanced level, day-to-day, for work and personal needs. Then Unity came along and things started to suck.
Today I tried it again. Never mind, I’ll accept the new Unity thingy and just roll the whole distro on my laptop. This is what happened:
1) installation went smooth. Yay.
2) I wanted to instal Chrome. It couldn’t complete Chrome installation. Hmm..
3) then I tried downloading and installing Netbeans . It crashed as well.
4) in the meantime, Compize reported “an unexpected error”, and crashed as well. It was fine after a reboot, but I don’t get how this is still acceptable in 2013, to have your desktop crash with no apparent reason..
aaaaaanyway – needless to say – I had enough for the first hour of Ubuntu.
see you in a few years, my dear Ubuntu, when you get more stable.. (ironically, that was the exact reason why I was promoting Linux for 4 years – because it was STABLE. Guess now it’s just.. well.. not.)
