  1. Switched to Ubuntu 7.10
    Very interesting OS.

    My soul feels better now because of it.

    or something....

      Besides it's less stable and breaks compatibility with many existing add-ons (such as programs and codecs). The former evidently because it's new, the latter, partly because it's different and partly because it's designed to disallow programs from functioning (where it's quick to link you to a page where you can buy recommended programs, if some desired function isn't working).

      Main issues I have with it:

      *Doesn't remember network passwords, despite clicking 'Remember my password'.
      *The volume control now only shows the app using the sound - no 'Wave', 'Synth', 'CD'. A complete bastard when using 5.1 speakers and you need to change specific speaker levels.
      *No support for windows help files:

      The bastards hijacked the help api, so taking winhlp32 from XP and associating with hlp files doesn't work.
      *Poor UI design, with everything assuming I'm a dumbass and need giant wizards/dialogs.

      Urgh. The list could go on and on. I would use Ubuntu, but like XP, it lacks drivers for sound/video.
