Ten sticking points for new Ubuntu users

Posted by: Anonymous [ip:] on June 28, 2008 04:32 PM
Hi. Just a little of my personal history with Linux. I started out several years ago with Knoppix, then moved to Kanotix. After Kanotix didn't have a full update in more than a year, I switched to Sidux. I have a Kubuntu 8.04 disk sitting here. I have not installed Kubuntu, though I have booted from the CD and checked things out. Kubuntu (and Ubuntu) are missing 2 things that I consider essential. The ability to manage files as Superuser (root), and the ability to open a root terminal. I also don't like the gui package management that they have chosen. Kbuntu may be ok for beginers, and those with only basic needs, but I will not be installing it at this time. Ubuntu has no chance at all of ever being installed here, as I like KDE so much better than Gnome.
