if you have any problems with ubuntu... chances are they are a problem with ubuntu specifically or maybe even just the DE

if you dislike something, you have PLENTY of options to play with, can switch over to fedora or debian or even arch, or you can just go with some different desktops like KDE or xfce or openbox

usually newer users dont notice differences between the different distros other than the DE (like kde vs gnome) so just experiment a little and find what ya like
Kinda meh now...
