So what do you think about Ubuntu 10.10?

Postby Soul Singin' » 2010-11-05 23:12

To be honest, I couldn't care less what you think of Ubuntu or its latest release.

I just want to see which thread runs longer. This one or the Fedora thread.

I don't even care about that. I am the bigger cynic! Ha! Victory! Kewlness!

well shit....

I open up the thread to read what everyone thinks about the new ubuntu and......nothing....nada....zilch...

I have been meaning to try out the LTS release, what was that 10.04 or something, but it is pretty low on my todo list. In fact trying out the LTS release before that one is still on my todo list.....

Well, after natty narwhale there will be:
Orgasming Onan
Prickly Pervert
Queen Quincy
Raunchy Rat
Sniveling Shrew
Transexual Tiger
Urinating Urial

and more.
Let my desire and hope surpass my expectations;
And give me the strength to persevere through doubt.
Grant me the wisdom to exceed my bounds.
Let my eyes always see through the dream fog of childhood,
so that every moment may be treasured.

I just think that Ubuntu becomes less and less GNU. It's something based on Linux kernel. Just some OS from Canonical. Maybe something similar to Mac OS X. :)

I took a quick glimpse at my crystal ball and saw this thread locked. So Fedora thread "wins". I don't care about either one so to get my coat once again I'll go...

I tried the alternate version (not the live CD), so could only install it onto a spare partition.
After using for a few seconds, the screen slowly faded to black and nothing, including Alt SysRq could do anything. I tried five times, turning off desktop effects and trying other things, but each time the same result. It lasted about 30 minutes before I dug out an old Squeeze CD and put something that works onto that partition. Now I'm running one Squeeze and one Testing so that when Squeeze becomes stable, I'll be back to two different releases.

My thoughts are, without testing it, "well how nice for them". I don't care really, it's not my thing. I use Debian.

I've got it installed on my parents computer at the moment. It's fine. The only problem is that there are about 60 updates a week, so if i don't go over there for a couple weeks there's a few hundred meg's of updates to apply. When squeeze drops I plan on switching them over.
