I submitted one of the two bug reports pertaining to this issue. The developer's seem to have no idea what is causing the problem, the bugs status is "Low" and one developer commented that the bug is only cosmetic! I was not impressed...
Floppy drive support is not working in Hardy at all. I submitted two bug reports on this. The first bug report was merged with one regarding a CD-ROM issue? I submitted another bug report, the priority was finally set to "Low" and again no answers. This bug really makes Hardy look bad to me because previous releases did not have this issue.
I can understand why Firefox 3 beta 5 was used and in my opinion it was a good decision because when Firefox 3 goes final it will be updated.
There are a lot of user's with NVidea cards having problems with their resolution and compiz.
If you try and change your GDM Theme in Hardy be prepared to wait a very long time for the application to open the first time you use it! There is a known bug in this that was left unfixed.
These are just some of the most obvious bugs. I went through the entire development process, what a nightmare! I have never seen so much breakage in my life! Hardy is in no way ready to become an enterprise solution, it is more of a beta.
Just more of the same of what I'm used to from Cannonical. This is exactly what I was talking about when we were discussing my reluctance to even bother trying to report bugs for Hardy, based on my past experiences. Their beurocratic bug-fixing system only gives excuses, not fixes, and ranges from "Meh", "Nobody uses that anyway", to "We'll be sure to fix that in one of the next few releases."
This is yet another reason why it just stuns me that anyone would want to base their work on Ubuntu
