said in my last opinion piece in these pages (yes, this is subjective too) I get tired quite the topic of web browsers in KDE, and I want to come often happen to Ubuntu, Unity and Firefox , because it is a combination that increasingly looks better. Then, of course, I get Ubuntu 12.10, I test it for a few hours and I enter the seven evils.
Because the Ubuntu installer is great, and has improved in this new version of the distro, and once on the desktop, the truth is that the feeling is very nice . Perhaps, except the icon theme, everything looks first. But the troubles are soon to appear.
The first, from reading a lot in coming weeks via the Phoronix, is the regression performance at Canonical Shell . That is, a Dual-Core with 4 GB of RAM is slightly responsive and go slow with Unity is not normal (in VirtualBox with 1 GB of RAM is depressing to extremes never seen). Seriously, there heavier desktop experience in the PC world that offered Ubuntu . In its earlier version of this all is much worse (I did not explain it).
But if performance is bad, the new lenses Amazon for the dash represent the arrival of spam to desktop PC through the front door . What horror! That tawdry detail and insufferable! It’s much worse than using one of those apps for Android with advertising. And yes, I know it can be removed (of course!), But I fear that the most basic user will eat it with potatoes.
understand that Canonical has to make money, and pro such detail before downloading the installation image, they ask donations style Humble Bundle, I think it is right. But what they have done with the searches in the dash is, in my point of view, demeaning to the same Ubuntu.
also know that updates will come and everything will be much better in a few months, but what can I say, it happens with all operating systems, people named Linux, Windows or Mac, and the difference between installing openSUSE 12.2 or Mageia 2 as left-to name a few examples-is very, very sharp regarding system performance (KDE talk to ‘a full’ with Akonadi, Nepomuk, a thousand effects, ect) .
Sorry to be so crude
, but I’m still in shock after suffering slow Unity , which in a matter of style and features, excluding spam-Amazon, however, each time I like more.
Honestly, as I said, I see no ending sometime in Ubuntu, for that to go with the flow, and as I do not plan to return to Windows or Mac much less to spend, the big bet is Ubuntu , no doubt (yes, I am betting on the success of Ubuntu, despite my reviews). But at this rate …
So excuse me I’m going to say now, because I get the bowels, but it is a great pity that Canonical, Qt and KDE exist, apostase for as ordinary as GNOME project (although now be visionaries with GNOME Shell). But of course, if people GNOME could not be handled, much less to KDE. missed opportunity .
In closing, I recommend any reader lost ending in these pages looking for information on Ubuntu 10.12, and everything I’ve read-released, he tries also, because it is worth . Just do better with Ubuntu 12.04. Or much better, with Kubuntu 12.04.
