I've moved over to Chakra Linux and I sometimes really miss Synaptic's advanced functions. I don't like what they've done with Ubuntu at all.

I do not really care for Ubuntu much anymore either. They are trying too hard to make the OS mainstream, but ends up just being bloated.

You people are never happy. Linux will never catch on if they REMOVE stuff from the distro to make it "less bloated." Linux does not GET bloated in the first place. You could install 10,000 packages and it will still not BE bloated. I could install every DE and I would not have a bloated system. Yes, obviously it'll take up more space, but it doesn't slow down the system.

And Ubuntu has been getting better with every release, whether you think so or not.

I like the old look of Ubuntu. The sidebar on the left, Not exactly my taste. Although I guess I could get use to it. Unless there is a way to fix it to make it like the old one. I'll use 10.04. Suits my needs just fine.

Totally agree. Ubuntu's bloat is well documented and it's not only bloated but also resistant to being trimmed down. Boot times have been rising, useless, untested features are tacked on and what they've done with the desktop is an atrocity. If 2011 has been bad for Linux it's been a complete disaster for Ubuntu.

Well Gnome is already moving away from the menu look. AFAIK the only way to have the "old" look is to use Xubuntu, Lubuntu, or Kubuntu.

The two bars on the top & bottom is GNOME 2, which has been killed off by the devs.

That must be why the userbase is higher than ever. Bloat is relative. What you consider bloat might be necessary for someone else. Developers can't really add on new features without using a bit more resources. Ubuntu is trying to be a mainstream operating system, and it can't do that without the bloat.

Is Unity's functionality any better? I know I don't like how it looks, but is it at least less buggy now?
