This day I was reading the four reasons to avoid Ubuntu entry and I thought the reasons were not good enough so I would come up with my 4.
4. It doesn’t support most of the good software. Let’s face it. GIMP is nowhere near as easy or as good as Photoshop (its only advantage is that it’s free). Open Office just is bad and noone uses it anyway. I’m not talking about itunes.
3. The graphical interface sucks. I mean, the default one. I know, it just takes up one CD, but come on. I booted my life CD and all I could say was “What the hell is that?”. Nowhere near the “Wow” effect of Macs. Or Vista.
2. No devices ever work on it. You have to work your ass off and waste like 4 hours to make the damn printer… PRINT! And only if you’re lucky. I’m not talking about all the MP3 players, cameras, whatever.
1. This was a tough one. I mean, there are so many annoying things about it and I didn’t even know what was the worst one. I haven’t seen this on any other lists so I’ll use this. It’s too techy! Do I really have to go through this whole tar -xzvf (-xzvf, what the hell does that mean? Couldn’t they make it just tar because EVERYONE uses -xzvf), then compile make make install what the hell. Some software can be installed earlier, but still. I can’t even browse files normally as this kick-ass file manager is too complicated.
I can do most of this stuff, however, I have had some experience with Linux. Think about the beginners. Still wondering why noone uses Ubuntu?
Well, MS ain’t perfect either, tho…
