    On April 29th, the Long Term Support version of Ubuntu will be released,
    a release that Mark Shuttleworth devoted all his time to so that Ubuntu
    will finally shoot Windows out of the proverbial window. Get it at
    http://www.ubuntu.com/ You'll be glad you did.

    What can be done with Ubuntu:

    Email
    Surf the web
    Burn CDs.
    Rip CDs.
    Listen to music.
    Watch vidoes/DVDs.
    Scan and print.
    Spreadsheets.
    Presentations
    Newsgroups.
    HTML editing.
    Games like Chess, Tetris, all kinds of solitaire, etc.
    Make videos.
    Download photos from a camera and organize them.
    Translations.
    Use a dictionary
    Learn how to touch type.
    Edit images.
    Send and receive a fax.
    Take screenshots.
    Create .PDF files.
    Create and use a data base.
    Instant messaging with over 10 different programs in one including
    Windows Live Messenger.
    IRC.
    Bluetooth.

    and much more!

    What you can't do with Ubuntu:

    Worry about:
    WPA, WGA and WAT raising their false positive ugly heads,
    DRM,
    Viruses,
    Root kits,
    Spyware,
    and
    Malware.

    Use it to wipe Windows off your PC...tinker with it, play with the
    cube,marvel at the low quality.
    Then comes the moment when you think "What have I done?"
    "Why in the hell did I listen to that idiot".
    "Now I've got to re-install Windows all over again".
    "I'll never drink that much again"

    From Full Circle, an on line Ubuntu magazine Q & A column:

    A few weeks ago, I
    updated using the
    Update Manager. I
    reboot as requested,
    but I couldn't get back into
    Ubuntu. I asked for help around
    the forums, but had internet
    access problems. Finally I
    decided to reinstall using the
    Live CD as suggested (with
    some kind people's advice).
    But I lost a lot of time & effort.


    Poor jerk. Installed Ubuntu and the first time he upgraded it died and
    he had to re-install.

    Another one:

    For the past months I have been getting "your session lasted less then
    10 seconds" so I have been unable to log onto Ubuntu.

    Nice one. Install Ubuntu and it won't let you log in.

    And yet another:

    I've tried a few low cost Bluetooth dongles and have discovered that
    they work with windows but not Ubuntu. It seems I was using dongles
    that used firmware by CSR which is apparently unsupported by
    Ubuntu....

    Great, you install Ubuntu and the economical versions stop working.
    Windows can but Ubuntu can't.

    If this kind of stuff is published in a magazine that was started to
    support Ubuntu imagine what is published in an unbiased magazine.

    Gosh, he had Internet connection problems and couldn't update properly.
    The same thing would happen to Windows except you'd probably get an
    endless BSOD reboot.

    When using any OS, one should research hardware before buying it.

    Not sure you want to switch from Windows to Ubuntu? Buy a new hard drive
    and install it on that. Gosh, are you really that challenged that you
    couldn't figure that out?

    So you are saying Windows has never had an update cause a
    problem ? (Wrong)

    And you are also saying that Windows supports devices that
    Linux doesn't. True. By the same token though, how many times
    has there been a device that was one or two years old, that
    was supported and worked in Linux, and it *still* worked in
    the next version, and the next version, and the next version,
    etc.....what about the switch from XP to Vista ? How many
    devices did *that* break ?

    .......Besides.....if a peripheral doesn't work in Windows,
    it's the third-party mfgs fault and not a Windows issue, yet
    if theirs no Linux drivers for it, it's a Linux problem?

    And to get back to the content of the OP, are you also saying
    that the 'list' is wrong, and you can't do those things in
    Linux?

    That seems to be a valid problem, the problem itself anyway.
    'Not being able to use your computer for months' because of
    it.......well......

    A quick Google on the error message gets back hits.......

    From the Ubuntu forums....
    Redhat
    Xfce
    Fedora
    CentOS
    Debian & Mint obviously.
    ZenWalk
    Gentoo
    Novell SUSE
    SELinux

    This obviously is not an 'Ubuntu' problem, and seems to be
    permissions related, and not too widespread.

    No, it's you.

    The Linux thing is just secondary.

    Look, I make no wild claims about Linux nor its future.......I
    either correct mis-information, or am looking for a fact-based
    logical explaination to someone's negative claims.......

    Yeah, I'm that challenged, dumbass.
    Read my fuckin headers,dumbass.
    It ain't ubuntushitsthebed, tho.
    Your opening statement mentions "shooting Windows out the
    window"...whatever the hell that means.
    Nothing of side-by-side,mutiple HDDs,or partitioning schemes.
    Idiot...one minute It's to replace Windows, next it's "well, you still
    need Windows".
    Pick a friggen position, stick to it, and stop waffling about.

    Maybe he does mean we as in me too, I don't know, but why does
    that add some crazy homosexual connotation to the fact that
    two people in one place don't agree with you ? We know
    everyone wants to be liked, but face it, you can't be liked by
    everyone.

    Is that so hard to believe as you come off as so egotistical
    as you do, with 'I know everything' and 'I'm never wrong' and
    being elitist in every thing you say and all of your ideals.
    If someone doesn't 'like' you, it's because there's something
    wrong with them ? Maybe there's something wrong with you.

    How narcissistic can you be ?

    Well, as expected you show your ignorance, not only of computers, but
    now of Ubuntu.

    Here is the reply from Full Circle, who apparently know more about
    Ubuntu they you do.

    Each update is
    stringently tested by
    either the Ubuntu
    development team or
    one of the MOTUs before it is
    allowed into the main
    repository, with the update
    generally going into the
    "proposed" updates section for
    people to test. Unfortunately
    though, it is impossible to try it
    with everyone's configuration,
    so the best thing to do in a
    case like this is to submit a bug
    report so that (all going well) it
    will not happen again.

    Well it may be bullshit but here is what the magazine replied:

    If you can log into Recovery mode
    should be an option when booting,) you
    can go into the root shell, and create
    a new user name to log in with.
    You can do that with these two commands:
    #useradd (username)
    #passwd (username)
    Replacing (username) with your new login name.
    Reboot and try to log in using your new account.
    unfortunately if this doesn't work your best bet
    is probably to back up your data and reinstall Ubuntu.

    you need to re-word that statement, as in:

    "When using any OS, other then Windows, one should research hardware
    before buying it. Particularly when using Ubuntu."

    Alias, you are a liar. And, if your response above is any indication
    you know very little about Linux, or Ubuntu.

    The point is that Alias didn't have a clue about how to correct the
    problem, although the magazine had provided a serviceable fix (make a
    new account), which I later posted for his perusal.

    A Linux expert he doesn't seem to be.
