maybe it's a case of people naturally wanting to get on and develop the new and exciting, rather than fixing or improving what has allready been designed.That could be why linux isn't as counterintuitive as it should be .
Let's not take the problems you have with Software Manager as proof of something being wrong (though you wrote it a bit strange) with all of Linux Software Manager and Update Manager have been worked on for the LInux Mint 14 release cycle, bringing a lot of bugfixes. Sure, this could perhaps be further improved, or default to a setting usable on slower computers. You comments and feedback are welcome.

That is not controlled by the board, that is entirely in your web browser Make sure you have configured it correctly or ask for help. Have you selected the correct language for spelling check? Depending on your browser, you may need to install something extra for this.
