Comment 26 for bug 1292398

@gord:

What your company is doing is their decision, not a lot we can do. Changing OS over a bug doesn't seems like a rationnal decision, your company could have looked at this issue, and contributed a fix for likely a lot less of efforts than it's going to take them to change systems on a thousand mahcines.

It might be that Mint is going to have the same bug next time they update/rebase on Ubuntu (they are based on it after all), in which case you handle a transition for an OS which is having a less strong security and support story, good luck with that.

Not sure about the numbers, we don't track users/installations nor collect datas. It's just that Canonical supports Unity as its main product, tyou liking the desktop or not is not changing that fact. I'm sure you could find somebody selling support for GNOME remix though...
