The Trouble with Ubuntu

Ubuntu

First of all, let me say: Ubuntu sucks!...I don't mean that at all though, I'm just hoping it will generate Google hits.

While, Ubuntu (a Linux OS I'm very slowly sinking into, without letting go of Windows XP's hand even for a second) is very good - both in terms of marketing, community and actual product- there is still a long road ahead if it wants to realise it's quest of being the usurper of Windows/OS X.

My printer and scanner still need resolving under Ubuntu. This is mainly the manufacturer's fault (very few cater for this rogue GNU/Linux) but if it wants to be like OS X in simple driverless plug 'n' play, my non-obscure devices have to be catered for easily! I won't even bother trying to get my MIDI controller working with it, as, well, I'm not aware of any Ubuntu music apps!

ATI (or Ubuntu) need to have decent drivers for good quality DVD playback on my card...
