I hate Ubuntu >:(
I’m pretty sure upgrading the OS doesn’t change the filesystem structure…

if you wanted to challenge something claimed as stable and reliable, you should had gone onto debian. ubuntu is canonical's proposition to get a linux distro for a non-geek audience. that's why they have ditched gnome shell, kde and other desktops for unity. and all the issues you said for unity have been corrected in 12.04, which comes out thursday and i recommend it to you.

I tried Debian before Ubuntu.  It’s even worse.  At least Ubuntu tries to be usable, even if they have no idea what they’re doing.

Agh!  Why is there a “Suspend” option next to “Log out”?  Everyone knows suspend has never worked in Ubuntu and never will.  Now I have to go hold down the power button until my computer restarts.

"but when you must fail, fail noisily"
Wow, Unity sucks.  I mean, there’s like a nugget of a good idea there, but it’s an utterly failed implementation of that idea.
The Appearance setting now does nothing except change the wallpaper and theme.  Nope, nothing else.  Not yours.
Ubuntu has apparently chosen to reverse Unix tradition and fail silently.  Is it still searching for “compiz” or has it failed to find anything?  Some type of indication would be nice.
You list “Apps Available For Download” in the main menu, but when I search for one of them, you just show me… nothing?  (If you first select “Apps Available for Download”, and then search for Compiz, it will offer to download things.)

It’s a good thing Ubuntu provides an on-screen keyboard for all the times your Bluetooth keyboard will inexplicably stop working when it worked perfectly fine for months prior.

Ubuntu is not supposed to be " "stable", "reliable", "easy to use", "Just Works", or is somehow better than Windows." (at least as far as I can tell) It is supposed to provide an alternative to Windows (as Windows is really stupid if you are trying to compile something) and plus, it's free, so the fact that if boots at all is pretty amazing.

What ever happened to the feeling of ubuntu in Ubuntu?

Yeah, the idealism behind it is the only reason I put up with it for 4 years.

Try holding PrtSrc for more than a second XD

On my laptop PrtSrc is near the Ctrl key. I was accidentaly holding it for about 10 seconds, the machine froze for about 5-10 minutes. Afterwards I had to close several dozen print screen dialogs.

I really like the idea of a search-based interface.  I use it in Windows all the time.

Of course, the Ubuntu version feels like it was created by people who don’t understand what search is, and are just cargo-cult-copying their competitors’ features without comprehending what makes them good, and then, of course, removing every other avenue for finding things, because the search should be good enough.  Except that it’s not, because it only finds things if you type in an exactly correct string, so you have to be born already knowing exactly what to type, which defeats the whole purpose of a search and makes it just like a command line.  Oh wait.

I have my home server set to auto-login, specifically so that it will mount all external drives at startup.  It no longer mounts drives at startup.  Whyyyyyyyyy
