“People that “hate” Unity, I can not take serious. Very strange that there are so much “haters” posting on forums nowadays. Seems to me that these people are shills, trolls or they have personal problems. If a distro does not work for me for whatever reason, I try to solve it or I move to something else. I do not see reason to develop hate. If you react so emotional to setbacks in stead of solving them then this is your personal problem.
And by the way, any system can get slow, often a clean install does wonders. Then make a backup, that is what I do with all systems, Windows included. Keeps me happy :-)”In a discussion of the events of GNU/Linux in 2014, this comment appeared:
It’s the same old thing. An operating system gains reasonable popularity and it becomes godlike. It must not be criticized or the critic is declared mentally incompetent. That’s just wrong. If users become dependent on an OS and the developers of the OS go off on some tangent the users don’t like, that’s the developers’ problem, not the users. I long ago dropped Ubuntu because it didn’t work for me, breaking configurations with updates. I once had all my terminal servers drop out because the display manager would not run. My configurations were ignored. I went to Debian where users get much more respect. The policy that one package should not mess with the configuration of another protects users’ investments in their systems. Ubuntu thought it was fine that ~100 seats should be disabled when I installed a new set of icons, for Pity’s sake. For that, they overruled /etc/gdm.conf…
“implemented an option to allow app menus to be placed back in app window frames, Ubuntu developers got to work adding other long-delayed features to Unity. Among them a new lock-screen and an option to minimise apps to the Launcher by clicking on their icons.”I notice Unity is becoming more like the system it displaced years ago… I wonder if it’s the rebellion by users that’s finally awakened developers to the reality that users matter.
