Ten sticking points for new Ubuntu users

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 216.99.55.70] on June 28, 2008 05:17 AM
I must say that I have experienced almost ALL OF THE 10 points mentioned! I love ubuntu, but it made me pull my hair a few time over graphics card (my latest problems with my mythtv box in my living room), sound issues on my new computer, boot management etc.

For me, at this point in history and techno age, Ubuntu should be able to recognise the screen resolution your working at and give you a plug and play experience rather than having to spend time changing parameter in a .conf file. I think that this article points out that the basics need to be convered for an everyday user. The basics these days are video screen res, sound, adding new hard drives easyer, internet connection, browsing, music & video playback(including web stuff).

Cover the basics an people will be flocking over Linux operating systems rather than find themselves flocking to forums to trouble shoot.
