    It is not always that easy to say bye and turn away

In such case Ubuntu is in better position, because there are categories in Unity, but when someone has less applications installed it's easier to find one in Win7. KDE is good in every case.

    There is one kind of relationship called "binding",
    There is one way of production called "efficiency",
    There is three feeling called "confident", "familiar" and "relaxing".
    There is a situation that when you tell it you may be in trouble: "fish swims in the water".

    Years of experience and maybe co-grow-up, makes it as hard as to say good bye to your mind-changed walking-away girlfriend.

    I know some of you may just turn around right away and start to find a new one.

    But that is not for others.

    Your word "Just like Win7." only means you like TYPING in both OS, but you forget or ignore the other way in WIN7---the "CLICKING".
    So definitely it does not like WIN7.

    Life is short, I just want get things done, without guessing, without finding, and the shortest way existed before in Ubuntu, ---clicking on the item shown on screen.

    I, maybe not you, have the same pain.
    I do not like my big screen computer has an interface of smart phone.

    I want it to keep quiet, not in my way ( not asking me to TYPE/GUESS all the time).
    Count me in. Looks like some people forgot their early time they used their comp. Or maybe our ROBOJ1M here is a genius. There's no word 'learning curve' for him. Plus, he can memorize all the program that he need.

    And, I prefer win7 menu than ubuntu anytime. Or kde . Not interested on OSX

    Ubuntu is dead.
    I think I have to agree. When a new release came out, pre-Unity, one would start a torrent and it would download faster than taking the ISO directly from their servers. Since Unity I've found that the torrents are slower, there just aren't as many peers and the peers that are present are slower. It's been over twelve hours and I'm still only half way there.

    This tells me that many people have jumped ship for other distributions and it's unfortunate that Canonical, or Mark personally, cannot see what they have or he has done to the Ubuntu community.

    I haven't liked the new interface but was willing to try it in it new "polished" form but I see from this thread that there are still many unhappy with it. My current candidate, waiting until I'd made a decision on this was probably going to be OpenSuSE but I'll still have a look, when it finally downloads.

    Similar experience here. Installed alpha 2, along with xorg-edgers and my hand-assembled KDE, on 5 February to a ThinkPad X1. Have kept up dist-upgraded all through development and it behaved remarkably well the entire time. It's been the most stable *buntu for me yet. Therefore, this weekend I will nuke and pave the X1 and start with Q-why-can-I-never-remember-whatitsname.

    "fugly as hell"

    Really? I mean, really?

    Let's have a look shall we:

    Windows 7



    OS X Lion



    Ubuntu 12.04



    I like this one but it's an unfair comparison, far too high res

    I don't think anybody can honesty say that Ubuntu 12.04 does not stack up against 7 and Lion.
    Looks to me like it's halfway between the two myself.

    As for usability, I've never had any problems.
    Super + type what I'm looking for + Return
    Just like Win7.

    And as a long time sufferer of Windows at work, including Win7, there is nothing, NOTHING, intuitive about Microsoft interfaces.
    Apple, yes. They know how to build an intuitive interface.
    Microsoft. Dear god no.

    OS X is pure crap, but Win7 has usable environment. However, after years spent in KDE4 I don't want to even look at Win7. Win8 looks to be the worst thing ever.

    I bet you that Ubuntu will die sooner rather than later with that stink-awful poor excuse of a GUI they came up with.
    I kinda like Unity, but the way of launching applications is very annoying. I prefer traditional desktops. Ubuntu is becoming more and more popular, but it can be related to possibility of running Gnome2 like desktop. There are people who love Unity and there are people who hate it, but they like other parts of the system. There are also people who hate entire Ubuntu of course. I forget - the windows menu is terrible, because there are no groups like in KDE.

    I see what you did there. You covered the fugly desktop and didn't show any widget controls, but instead showed an app that uses its own, custom controls. Clever.

    I just think hating on Ubuntu is the popular thing for kids to do these days. ;-) You can offer solutions and tips, but they'll fall on deaf ears.
