It's funny how Ubuntu got big by laying emphasis on the community and now you are doing things like this one here.

The movement of the window buttons is just one of many reasons I'm currently wiping out all Ubuntus and replacing them with Debian Squeeze (which is, even if it is testing, much more stable, does regard the GNOME standard, doesn't have ads, IS a democracy, plus the devs don't customize the UI to death).

On a laptop of a friend where Jaunty was installed she was prompted to upgrade to Lucid. I was surprised to hear that. A dist upgrade can break the system: why are you prompting users to do it??? Anyway... she clicked through, the upgrade was rolling. Sure enough afterward the system was broken and I had to fix it up. Lucid had multiple annoying bugs on that laptop too. I took the /home partition over to Squeeze. Went really smooth. One Ubuntu less.

I also don't recommend Ubuntu to other people anymore. I try to hook them up with Debian for their own good as I can somewhat foresee that this is just the beginning of more unpleasant decisions.

Goodbye Ubuntu.
