It is nice. It is clean, it is polished. It has a tool to help install proprietary drivers like the Nvidia driver. They have done a lot to make it so people can be up and running in minutes. It is still very brown and earthy. I like earthy normally, but Ubuntu is just not my cup of tea. I keep trying to like it, but there is just something about it. Maybe it is the security setup where you have to sudo everything? I dunno. I could fix that I suppose and see. So far though, I have not been able to stay with Ubuntu long enough to get around to fixing it.
I have tried Ubuntu lots of times, but there is something about it that just does not work for me. For years I thought it was Gnome. Then I installed Debian and actually tried working with Gnome, and loved it. So I guess it is not Gnome. Now I have no idea what the problem is. Maybe it is the whole package. The brown, the way they have the menu’s the security. I dunno. If anyone else has a similar problem, let me know. In the meantime, I guess I will stay with Debian. In fact, I am thinking about installing Debian Lenny to play with. I am sure I will report on it here when I do.
