I am not sure what is the best way to reach the official
Canonical-members (not talking about the staff in the support or
development - I am talking about the managers). I even tried emailing
Jono some time ago and never got a response.

The main reason why I am still subscribed to this bug is because once
- a longer while ago there was a comment from Mark Shuttleworth (if
authentical) and I hope he is sometimes having a look here.

As far as I understood, it was already there. But anyway, I remember
times when Ubuntu was claiming to solve a lot of problems, Windows
users had - now the argument I see more often lately is "<this or
that> is not better on Windows."

Yes, but after some time you get also tired of distro-hopping. And
however, I do see stability problems rising in pretty all
