Yet another Ubun refugee
I started on this path in 08, when my notebook's hdd [XP pre-installed] went bad
Ubun 8.04, got my feet wet
Moved to mint in pursuit of user-friendly, was made to feel unwelcome for pointing out mint doesn't support network shares
Back to Ubun through 10.10
Set up virtualbox, which allows quick distroshopping
It became clear that, I couldn't live with the Unity DE [desktop environment], which to me ruled out, all the Distros downstream of Ubun. As canonical cut off direct support to derivatives like Kbun seems justified
One of my parameters became close to the source, either Redhat or Debian
A good community another
I didn't get booted from the Ubun forum, various mods did suggest I leave, for having a less than positive opinion of Unity
My journey led me to Mageia KDE. One of the mods on the forum took offense when when I changed my signature to "Proudly Terminalphobic" & would follow me around & correct me [right or wrong]. I objected to several of the mode by pm.
The response, gee we know he's an arse, but he does so much work, get over it...
So here I am, test driving the community
