I’m really pissed off with Ubuntu now

Well I was quite looking forward to getting my hands on Ubuntu 7.10 and I have to say now that I am regretting the move that took hours to download.

First of all it took ages to even get me connected onto the Internet, and it still only works with Firefox and nothing else. And it still goes slow.

Secondly, I’m not overly pleased with the overall look and theme of it. In some cases I preferred the older Ubuntu, although I will reitirate: in some cases. As I quite like the fonts, etc.

And thirdly, the 3D effects do not work and I was quite looking forward to them. But becuase I have an ATI card (X1600 Pro), I can’t get them.

Bloody open-source, might as well go back to XP, at least that does everything (almost) I want it to! I had have expected everything to go fine and not have this major networking problem.

    I agree with you about the look. I just posted about it looking dingy and lackluster.

    I also had the disappointment of the 3d effects not working and the whole cool app switching ui thing … well, I couldn’t even find where that was. Maybe we have to have the cool desktop fx enabled first.

    Too bad that I couldn’t.
