    Phoronix: Ubuntu Set To Terminate Its Brainstorm Project

    Ubuntu Brainstorm served as a way for the Ubuntu community to nominate new ideas for the Linux operating system, comment on these ideas, and vote on the ideas should you find them interesting and worthwhile. However, now it looks like Ubuntu Brainstorm is going to be eliminated...

    No probs and thanks. In my opinion we all are in the same boat, maybe just using different oars, but that should not be a biggie.

    Giving advice and insulting are two very different things. And yes, apologizing is enough, THANK YOU.
    But the fact you say this means I misjudged you, so I apologize too.

    So, is there anything I can do to make you "Ubuntu" users happy and content of the fact that people rather use Debian GNU/Linux than "Ubuntu"? Is it enough if I apologize that

I was 9, though, so I can't care less of how ignorant or stupid I was back then. I had the same air of superiority you have right now, with even less merits.

    Gentoo was great for learning but not so great when emerge world broke something you had no time to fix. So, back to Debian GNU/Linux.

    When Ubuntu came I saw no need to use it. It took several versions of Ubuntu before I tried it first time. At times Ubuntu almost got behind Debian GNU/Linux. I wondered if Ubuntu would eventually reach Debian GNU/Linux. But no, doesn't seem to happen for it has fell far behind again. Software Shit (center) is a freaking fail, and if you want to do something else than browse web you will always find things broken in Ubuntu.

    Today Ubuntu is like a test bed of how shit derivate you can make.

    I don't like software center either; I do use a GUI for apt, though, because it's handy. I use Synaptic. The only thing I keep forgetting how to do with the CLI tools is to see the description of a package, mostly because when I use the CLI I'm usually already sure which package I need to touch, so reading descriptions becomes pointless.
    I do more things than surfing the web, one of them is cross-compiling for Windows, and I found nothing broken on that side. Up until mid 2012 most of my desktop was built from the git repos (LXDE in one box, XFCE in the others), one of my boxes used a custom kernel, built from jsimmons repo. As a natural consequence, I built the X.org driver too. I did, and still do, find things broken in Ubuntu in general from time to time (upgrading is still pretty much broken most of the time). I did find broken things in Arch and Debian, too, while trying to install them on a friend's computer. Debian simply hanged up, I guess in a panic since ctrl+alt+del didn't help, Arch I do not remember what failed at first, and when that got solved, hardware started failing randomly.
    I grant you Debian is pretty much as easy to use as Ubuntu (and its wiki is lovely organized, I use it almost every time I want to toy with the configs) once installed. The main reason I recommend Ubuntu is because some specific packages are easier to get from PPAs for Ubuntu than for Debian and because the installation process is (or was, it was a few years ago I tried to install Debian on my friend's computer, so it might have changed) easier for the beginner. I don't like Unity, but most people I recommended Ubuntu to like it for some reason. I like XFCE the better, and I'd expect it to be easier to adapt to if you come from Windows than Unity.
    I'm not talking because I don't know how to use GNU/Linux, I'm talking because I know how to respect people who just needs shit done.

    So what, I blame any organization that releases broken software, when the release is caused by a broken release model, like Ubuntu's "We release on that specific day, no matter in which state the software is" approach.
    That's a good point.

Also gentoo is shit for a sane user that just wants something that just works. Stop with the air of superiority. Nobody in their fucking right mind would recommend either gentoo or arch when selling linux to other people
    Depends on to whom. If someone would want to learn something else of the system than howto click stuff, then I would definetly recommend Gentoo, maybe. It used to have very good documentation and a lot of stuff to study, configure, and adjust. But if one would not want to learn, then I would just install Debian GNU/Linux (with default desktop) and say have fun clicking stuff

    And yeah, everything have stuff broken, even Debian. I have two accounts configured in Empathy in Wheezy, Jabber and gtalk, and when I try to disable gtalk from accounts the window just crashes

    But at least it used to be very hard to find broken stuff in Debian.

    Also, if you really want to show how smart you are, you could use something like Arch or Gentoo...



    A sad truth.
