[OMG! Ubuntu!] Ubuntu 12.10 Released, Ready to Download - Page 2

"Avoid the pain
of Windows 8."

A pointless slogan if there ever was one.

I don't think people complaining about UI changes in Windows 8 are going to find Unity and Dash that much more appealing.
Also, people who have issues with cloud integration in W8 aren't likely to take up an operating system that's focused even more on cloud integration.

I don't mind the GUI too much. The only thing I hate about it is how the menu is always moved up into the top bar. So when I compile multi-platform software, I have to add an extra check if the OS is using Unity to avoid odd sized forms. Since most other distros use Gnome3 and have the menu bar in the application itself (Canonical is trying to be like Apple).

Yep, if anything Metro is much easier to use once you get the hang of it then Unity. Unity is only user friendly at the start since all of your applications are pinned right there on the task bar.

Agree, Gnome2 style was the best.

That's because everyone was installing the GlobalMenu plugin with Gnome2 and requesting for an actual one at the time. So Caonical made their own version, lol.

But I agree, Gnome 2 was my favorite. Ever since it was deprecated in Arch I started using DWM and honestly can't go back to floating window managers, they just annoy me so much and feel weird to use.

elaborate please. I remember you recommending arch to me before, if it's debian (ubuntu is debian right?) based and I don't have to learn a bunch of new CLI commands I might want to play with it.

I'm assuming it's functional?

Yes, Ubuntu is quite an efficient operating system with stable performance and fast boot/shutdown times. The main drag is having to type your password over and over if you choose to install new programs or modify the system settings. Such a pain.

Arch is Arch, it's not based on another distro. The structure/philosophy is loosely related to BSD, without being a copy more so like Gentoo is ( kinda ).

CLI is used a bit more in Arch but it's a lot easier than most think tongue.gif Aside from the basic mv/cp/mkdir commands you have the package manager Pacman, which is so simple an idiot can use it. But it is more centered around the power user, so CLI is needed. Easy enough to learn the basics within a day or so of messing about. There are a few that the wiki or guides will tell you, but most aren't ever needed except during installation, or specific tasks ( not every day tasks ). And once you get the system the way you like it, setup with GUI and all, you rarely have to touch the command line if you don't want to, aside from updating which is a simple " pacman -Syu ", and some yes/no options and done. All pretty much outlined in the guide I made a while back tongue.gif

And Arch's wiki is pretty much unbeatable as an information center. So much so a lot of Ubuntu's and other wiki's have a lot of information pretty much copy/pasted from it ( with slight changes when needed ).

It's apart of why *nix based systems are so secure. Users aren't allowed access outside of their home directory unless root says otherwise. And honestly, once you get a system set up the way you like you aren't typing it that much. You shouldn't be installing / uninstalling or messing about in the system settings enough for it to truly be that bothersome.

That's understandable, but you can always remove the security keyring.
