What I Don't Like About Ubuntu Linux....

Filed under
Ubuntu

I've finally done it. I've managed to successfully install Ubuntu on a computer that runs at a decent speed. That said, I thought I'd give you my opinion of Ubuntu. Yes, I am a Linux guy, and I may always support Linux, but that doesn't mean I can't criticize it!

First I must say that the install process was pretty simple. I did test both the text-based and graphic-based installer, and the graphic-based installer was much easier to use. I found that the keyboard detection in the text-based installer was not always correct, and more configurations were asked about the host computer in general. The common user may not know the answer to all the questions asked.

Setting up DHCP might not also be easy for the common user. I forgot to plug my ethernet cable in, and Ubuntu obviously gave me an error, along with a few things to check before retrying the DHCP setup.

  • SMS based Cosmos Browser for the developing countries
    Browsing the internet has different meaning to different people. While to some the web is a source of entertainment, to others it is a valuable and source of learning. Sadly enough, the internet is not widely available and easily affordable everywhere in the globe. Slow network speed is another problem. Developer Stefan Aleksic of ColdSauce tries to find a solution in an SMS (text) based browser for the third world countries which are yet to see the internet as we know it. He has named it the Cosmos Browser. If you ever used elinks on Linux, you know how efficient and low-bandwidth text only browsing can be. Of course, it is not meant for visiting a website for downloading wallpapers, but it is more than sufficient if you want to read some information from the web. Cosmos will work on text and will not need any data plan or WiFi.
