    This is a pre-emptive message to everyone who's inevitably whinging about how they don't like the result of the TSR vB3.8 upgrade.

    Get over it.
    Stop complaining.
    No, you can't have the old one back.

    What about: I hate the current rep system and I hate the new rep system equally.

    Windows updated my keyboard driver today, and it's overwritten all my custom keybind hacks. :rant:

    Though it's my fault for not backing up the files I changed, I suppose. Bit annoying though. :p:

    10 days to the next Ubuntu 6 month release, toying on jumping ship (to the Debian based Linux Mint, or possibly to Arch).

    Thoughts?

    it's purple, may be a tinge of maroon in there. brown's still available, but isn't the default colourscheme.

    Ubuntu's design used to be quite neat, but now they seem to be deliberately changing everything just for the sake of being different. Last I heard they'd moved the icons to the left side of the window pane, Mac-style, yet the buttons still act like they do under Windows. :eyeball:

    The colour scheme has never been brilliant (orange is an odd base colour to choose), but going for a murky, mud-brown colour scheme was an awful idea. Maybe it's a testament to the preferences of those who use it, but personally, I can't stand having a dark and murky desktop screen. I much prefer the Windows/Mac colour schemes, which are very bright and clear.

    The advantage of Ubuntu is that of course, you can customise it how you want, but even that seems to be steadily seeping out the window in favour of so-called user friendlyness. It's worse than what Windows does in a way, since the configurability is still there, but Ubuntu is deliberately making it inaccessible, which is inordinately frustrating. Macs tend not to restrict access under the hood, but simply sweep it under the rug, so it's out of sight for most users, which is a much better way of doing things IMO.

    I was once a Ubuntu user, I ran 6.10 as my main OS for ages, but no more. Windows 7 is wiping the floor with it at the moment, and until Canonical get their act together I won't be going near Ubuntu. :woo:

    I don't care about the default, my Ubuntu box is just as bright, as I use the default GNOME theme with a nice shade of green and some Guild Wars 2 concept art. :teeth:

    Yeah, but if you wanted TRUE customisability, you'd go down the Arch/Gentoo route, and that can be as bad as, if not worse than, getting a Hackintosh running. I find that Ubuntu with Ubuntu Tweak has just the right amount of cutomisation that I need without being overwhelmed by lots of options, like what can happen in Arch or Gentoo.

    The one reason why I stick with them is because I feel it is the most polished of all distros out there, apart from possibly Fedora, and it has by far and away the largest repo source, made larger by Ubuntu Tweak and getdeb. Once you change things about, I've found it's not that bad. Also, before you say anything else, I've tried Mint, and don't like the GUI.
