Ubuntu refugee here

Post by Ripfox » Sun Nov 06, 2011 4:00 am

Hi people, how is everyone?

Good!!

I had been using Ubuntu since Warty Warthog, and just jumped ship! I cannot use Unity at all. Very bad idea.
Anyway, great to be here, had like 1600 posts on UF but said goodbye!
Looking forward to using Mint 12, like all the concepts that are being put forward.
Happily using Mint 11 now.

Peace

Ripfox

All refuges gratefully accepted

Welcome to the Mint family forums

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

Yea, well I'm not kidding you when I say this.
I just got banned from UF for suggesting that Unity was a mistake for that distro.
I was not rude, I was not belligerent, I just made a few statements.
They kicked me off and said "good luck with other communities"


Now wow!!

Hello,
After using ubuntu for several years, as an distribution with best driver and community support, recently I started to look for other distributions . The main reason is unity and gnome 3. I don't have any good word for them, and I don't won't to spam forum with that.
Yesterday I downloaded LM 12 (full, not RC), and so far I can't believe my eyes - it is fantastic!

SilFox (another fox refugee from ubuntu :) ) happily using Mint 12 now.
