Upgrading from Nadia to Olivia resulted in a missing taskbar earlier today.
I have spent half of the day today to find a solution: removing NVIDIA drivers which I don't have, replacing Cinnamon, etc. Up until now the best success I've had was enabling gnome-shell to run my applications (whoa!)
After having spent enough of time and nerves, I decided to simply reinstall it. How surprised was I to learn that exe files cannot be run in my current state. And now I can't even burn an iso to a USB stick.
+ Package manager
- No Skype (fails every 5 minutes, as already described here in the forum)
- No support for MS Office under Wine (the same)
- Upgrading system at a risk of losing a day to fix bugs and save your critical data (I wonder if any Linux users are paid to test new releases. Well, I'm not).
