The Dumbing Down of Ubuntu

Now, in the past, Ubuntu was good to use. It was not that much heavier then Debian, but much easier to get installed, and usually came with more drivers.

Now, it's heavy. Not only is it heavy, it's being designed for idiots.

There are no options for anything. Power management is near non-existent. It's got this thing called Unity which is the worst UI ever. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING looks like a freaking Mac. I moved to a PC laptop to use Linux, not Mac OS. I have that on my other machine at home.

Trying kubuntu to see if that is better then the default, as with 11.04, they included the full GNOME as a fall-back, called "classic." That's gone now in 11.10.

Not happy.
