Ubuntu? Tumbleweed...

Postby Rhakios » Fri Apr 26, 2013 9:40 am

Has it gone so quiet here lately because everyone is busy upgrading their *ubuntus?
I ran a system upgrade on my XKUbuntu last night and it seems to be going okay at the moment. Is it a trifle quicker? Firefox appears to be, though I can't imagine why.

Is there a new Ubuntu out? I wonder what people will find to complain about this time :P

I have tried Mint a couple of times, and while there's nothing particularly wrong with it, I found myself changing it in much the same ways I change Ubuntu, and as most of the repos are the same, I've just stuck with Ubuntu.
Actually, there is one thing I don't like about Mint, it's the way some upstream updates are hidden, so that what Mint update suggests and what apt-get upgrade suggests differ.

Everything, while ignoring their option to use something else. :roll:

There could be anything up to 49 more, so I've read somewhere. Though it seems about half of them are based on Ubuntu anyway.

The other half is based on Ubuntu's daddy: Debian ;)

Anyway, Wheezy is out by May 4 or 5, if everything goes as planned. I won't use it, it pushes Gnome 3 through your throat... :evil: Squeeze is the last Gnome 2 release on Debian and I'll stick to it for as long as I can... :cry:

I tried 12.3 on my test box recently, and while it installed just fine and runs quickly enough, I found I was stuck with the ugly font problem that others have complained about in the past, but which has not previously afflicted me. I tried a few fixes, but nothing seemed to make much difference. :(

Luckily I'm not experiencing that.
