Not as good as before

Negative Comment by impossible about Ubuntu Also mentioning: elementary OS Antergos Linux Mint Nov 2013

I don't like running Ubuntu, not for a while now. It has a lot of other crap I do not want either. But there are good Ubuntu alternatives.


12.04... rock solid?

Comment by wormwood about Ubuntu Sep 2012

I like Ubuntu, really really like it, but each install I have lots of problems. Touchpad works fine for a couple of minutes, then it freezes. ctr+alt+f1 and ctrl+alt+f7 so it can work again. Lots of workarounds for a simple touchpad to work. When rebooting, after some driver updates and other stuff it requests (nvidia, libraries, gnu+whatever) it freezes before it is supposed to load the cursor, and screen keeps purple forever. Then, in recovery mode, it just runs a series of numbers every 30 seconds and stays like that. When I reinstall, same thing again. So I'm back to my old WinXP, waiting for the next release, and see if they fix anything so I can install it and work nicely with my lenovo t410.


Good OS

Positive Comment by lizhaofeng1998 about Ubuntu May 2012

Ubuntu is a excellent Linux distribution. It's fast, open-source and has a nice UI. Ubuntu will replace Windows one day.


Very fast, clean desktop, lots of apps, drivers downloaded during installation, it couldn't get better. Very user-friendly.


Absolutely a great GNU/Linux distribution, especially for newbies. Everything "just works", exactly the way you want it to.


I think that the Mac OS X is the best alternative... but Ubuntu being free is my number one choice. Absolutely in love with Ubuntu.


Have you tried SuperOS or LinuxMint? (I like SuperOS more) and have they also had the crashing problem that you mention? Just for comparison, because that is mostly what I have used. I rarely if ever use flat Ubuntu. For portability on my USB sticks I use Slitaz or Austrumi, but haven't had a problem with either of them.

I actually can find repositories that have all of the programs I use. So I dont usually need to compile them, but there are a few games and programs that I have compiled because there is no other way to get them installed. (at least not with the latest version) and How you talked about the single click RPM creation, there are a few programs that do that for DEBs as well. (i think its like debreate and a few others) but I personnaly have not tried them yet.
