      There is a bug with 3.11 and 3.12 RC kernels with my GPU and HDMI audio output. It is totally broken. Previously (ex. 3.8 kernel) HDMI audio output was working almost perfect except that it didn't work after system suspend (bug #1239233)

      The GPU is Radeon 2600 PRO and I have submitted already BUG reports to Launchpad but it seams it is an upstream bug.

      Launchpad BUG: #1237105

      Its a pity I can't use these kernels that support DPM!
      There is a 5-8 Celsius difference in temperatures with DPM even for such an old piece of hardware!

          Yay. Downloading Xubuntu right now. I hope a clean install will solve the packages oibaf broke. Next time I'll just go xorg-edgers, I had less pains with them.

              In during people hate on Ubuntu because it's popular and easy to use, and Linux no longer makes them seem super 1337 smart for using it.

              The point of free software is to be free(and effective). Not to be part of your secret 1337 hardcore h4ck3r club.

                Not for for me. I many times had tempted to switch to 'hackers distro like Gentoo, Slackware, or just Arch.
                And, I have no problem to handle either (albeit not much free time though).
                I had used LFS for some time for this mater

                But I staid and even was quite a zealous fan of U,
                precisely because I thought they will do the Linux right, and precisely because they will make it easy for the general public.

                But what it turned into, its not worth even using, and heavens forbid being a fan of.
                This is just a truth, and I am not trolling now.

                  Windows 8.1 is released, eh? That makes me wonder, did they keep the functionality of creating ReFS partitions? Because it would be nice if there was a way to use a filesystem that doesn't make a habit of eating your data for lunch on Windows. Although as far as I have found, ReFS can still fail completely on a power failure at this point...
                  Also makes me wonder whether there are any plans of ReFS support in Linux.

                    Same for me - Ubuntu was a good distro for a while, but that was a couple of years ago. Now it's a cancer on the community.

                      +1

                      I started my Linux journey on Ubuntu (Hardy Heron). Absolutely nothing would make me consider installing this crap. I'm a happy Arch user now.

                        As an end user, I hope Ubuntu Touch succeeds. I've given up on a company releasing a modern Linux friendly version of this:

                          That's how I used to feel and then I realized I could still run gnome-panel. Then I was like, "Oh! Oh I guess this isn't so bad..."

                          Even still, it's about that time when somebody else comes along and carries the torch.

                            It was for me up until Unity. Now I'm all about Xubuntu, while being based off Ubuntu, is light years ahead of vanilla Ubuntu.

                            Also Xubuntu plans to use Wayland in the future.

                              Well, obviously not much has changed and won't change with 14.04 either, as the focus is on Unity8, Mir and Core Apps. Ubuntu 14.10 will have nothing to do with Ubuntu 13.10/14.04, wonder if they will ship anything from GNOME at all then. And I am really excited!
