>>52383529 I quite like Ubuntu. I wish Unity had more flexibility but overall it is pretty good. I don't like how the dash is so fucking picky over shortcuts though. Pisses me off when I see random shit in their because I locked something to the dock. Also I wish Nautilus had more features. To be honest all the standard file managers on Linux are shit though.
I also quite like Ubuntu GNOME but GNOME Shell still feels quite a way off from being something I could use every day.
>>52383529 Because I'm a worthless memer that wants to spend two weeks building a memedistro from the kernel up for a 0,5% speed increase just to do absolutely nothing with it afterwards. 617 6UD Y0U N008
Apart from Dolphin/KDE, I hate that the file managers can never display thumbnails in a non retarded manner. I maximize a file manager and increase the icon size. I could easily fit about 5 horizontally but for some reason they add a shitload of padding between them so I only get 2.
>>52383670 Yup. Also Files (nautilus) on Ubuntu is retarded in so many ways. It can't remember specific per folder settings. If you have a list view you can't multi-select with the mouse. It ignores _ characters at the start of a filename when sorting so if you have _important it will appear with the rest of the files starting with i. Can't have check boxes for tiles to make selecting multiple files easier. It can't pause or queue transfers. It doesn't inteligently handle multiple transfer to/from a drive by using a queue. Hell even Explorer does most of that shit in Windows.
I hate ubuntu, many programs are even older than the debian ones, like anything gnome related. had many problems trying to display thumbnails for my porn, it didn't even work at all because of old as fuck buggy evince. fuck them with a cactus.
>>52383807 That is worse than the LightDM bugs >LightDM has specific patches to fuck with you in Ubuntu >Destroys HiDPI support for LightDM, even though it works without the specific patches (See Xubuntu) >These patches leak over sometimes (See Mint)
On the subject of file managers I don't think ctrl shift select works the same way as it does in Windows (selecting multiple whilst not deselecting any others currently selected) for some Linux file managers.
>>52384032 You should probably be using Pale Moon anyway
>>52384233 Nah, I have the exact same opinion of MATE, it's just Cinnamon without any of the polish. The taskbar, system tray, right-click menus etc. all works like it should in a modern DE, MATE makes me feel like I'm back in 2005 again.
>>52383529 Ubuntu is a great distro and people new to Linux should use either Ubunut or Mint. And for experienced Linux users the distro doesn't really matter as long as you have the programs you need and terminal window to work with.
Linux is STILL in the dark ages because of Ubuntu.
They should have spent more time making programs and emulation of said programs more efficient so that they can attract the Windows crowd, but Ubuntu's desperation to be an "alternative" has pushed Linux's progress back immensely.
>>52385943 >implying you've ever actually used Arch You do some very basic configuration which is all explained in the wiki and takes like half an hour. Then you can install whatever you want through the package manager. Most basic programs like Xorg work out of the box with the default config. If you've ever used a CLI before Arch is just as easy to set up like Ubuntu or Debian.
>>52385943 yeah, it works just the way it was intended to work no it doesn't do a lot of things that other OSs do automatically, but it also wasn't meant to do that out of the box working or not is just a matter of doing what it's supposed to, not having any OS do anything you want even if it's not meant to do it or at least not without supplementary software Just like Windows doesn't compile C code out of the box, because it wasn't meant to do that out of the box if it was meant to, but didn't, then it would not "just work"
>>52387843 yes i know. my point was it is missing a basic selection feature with the mouse that has been around since at least Windows 95. I can't remember how Program Manager worked on Windows 3.1 or Mac back then.
>>52383529 Why doesn't anyone talk about the fact that they are headed by Canonical? Corporate control over FOSS is seldom profitable and they are bound to switch up the business model greedily in the future.
As for the distro itself, Unity isn't the best but by far I prefer it over GNOME. APT is not great but certainly not mediocre, and Ubuntu has a lot of repos because so many people use it. It uses systemd now which is another mediocre aspect about Ubuntu. Overall, Ubuntu is mediocre but just werks.
>>52391623 Unity is easy to use, and it looks good enough for the average user. I'm speaking from experience. Also, the effect Ubuntu had on users started happening way before Unity was a thing.
And it's the only one other than Gnome3 that looks like it is its own thing, because everything else looks like they tried to make them look like windows, so they feel off. And Gnome3, fancy as it might look, takes too much visual space.
