Ubuntu 7.10

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.
