Ten sticking points for new Ubuntu users

Interesting, and i mostly agree. I would put suspending and hibernating first and foremost, followed by sound (a problem i don't have), and adding the robustness of the support for flash in websites. To keep it at 10 i'd remove the documentation point... Any of these problems should be solveable without resorting to any doc, they should be trivial (like the mount app example: it there's a easy to use app that just works, nobody will look for documentation). Another point i don't agree is compiling... It IS important, but Ubuntu won't "win the desktop" making easy to compile random junk from repositories. I think is much critical reaching stability in what we have NOW. Like it's pretty silly that the gnome's panel drawer is unusable, and been like that since desktop effects are default, or the abovementioned flash hell that kills browsers randomly while watching youtube, or sound glitches.
In other works, i think Ubuntu should push towards robustness of the desktop.
