I hate Unity

Postby blackSP on Fri Jul 08, 2011 5:22 am

Hi all, since I hate Unity and the Ubuntu roadmap I switched from Ubuntu to Mint a few days ago, time to register here!

I'm not a newbie, have been using Linux for the past 6 years and abandoned Windows from my personal life about 4 years ago and never looked back (that's a lie, I run XP in virtual box to manage my GPS).

What else do I do?
I was a C/C++ programmer back in the days and have a desire to pick that up again. So I've started sniffing around but don't have the time really : (

I love my Samsung SGS Android phone and have been changing ROMs and kernels more than I change my socks.

I like off roading on my bike (HP2 Enduro)

See you around!

Welcome 2 da LM forum.

I hate ubuntu, so anything that hurts that drastically overhyped .. run of the mill, by no means anything like the best of linux, special or deserving of all the acclaim it gets ... Makes me a happier person, lol. Ya know people say LM is ubuntu done right. Hope you find it lives up to it's rep and you continue to enjoy using LM.

edit: Hate is too strong a word. Thought to amend that to dislike ubuntu ... not hate. :D

Welcome blackSP. I too think hate is a little strong. I would just say that I prefer to use other desktop environments than Unity or Gnome 3 Shell. Have fun with Mint.
