Re: Ten sticking points for new Ubuntu users

You've obviously never run into a problem trying to install Ubuntu on a system with a 19" widescreen LCD. The display detection is basically broken, and if you're lucky, you'll end up booting to 640x480. But just as easily you can get to a point where the display won't work at all, 'cause Ubuntu tries to use an incompatible mode, despite what you told it to. And then the only way to fix it is to ssh in from another machine and manually hack xorg.conf.

And let's not even get into hibernate. I've tried to make it work on three separate installs, and it simply DOES NOT WORK on most systems.
