started with Ubuntu on the day of their first release, having come from Debian. I've been loyal since then. I felt Ubuntu was trying to make some changes that needed to be made in both the Linux distro world and in Debian specifically.
I spent countless hours on teh forums working with people to help them get settled into Ubuntu. I wrote howtos for the wiki and for this blog. I never tried to monetize the blog because that's not what I created it for.
During the 7.10 Beta cycle, I reported a bug involving unmounting of removable drives. Sebastien Bacher (yes, I'm calling him out!) did nothing but argue and stall over which word would be appropriate. Eventually Sebastien disposed of the bug.

I've been struggling with moving to Ubuntu Hardy Heron for almost a week. The aforementioned random-freeze problem has become more and more of an issue, and as I said previously, this is a deal-breaker.
It's not for lack of trying to fix it, either.
I give up.
