I'll be really interested to see how solid Unity will be by the time 11.10's final release drops.

Synaptic Removed From Ubuntu 11.10, Deja Dup Added As Default [Oneiric Updates]

Quote
In an update today, Synaptic Package Manager has been removed from the Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot default installation, but it's still available in the repositories so you can install it via Ubuntu Software Center.

Thanks for the "heads-up."

I think that's a foolish & unnecessary decision.

I understand why they are doing this.  To save disk space so that the install disk will fit on a 700 MB CD.

PCLinuxOS does the same thing with OpenOffice.  They do not bundle OO in with the install CD.  Instead, they include a simple link (script) that downloads and installs OO after the installation.

UPDATE:

PCLinuxOS has replaced OpenOffice with LibreOffice as their default office software.

Ubuntu 11.10 Alpha 3 – behind the scenes with Oneiric Ocelot

Quote
In regards to the Desktop flavour we have seen a few improvements, including the switch to Gnome 3 (using the Unity shell).  There have been a number of improvements to Unity, both usability and reliability.  If the computer doesn’t have 3D acceleration (or to enable requires non-free graphics binary drivers), then there is automatic fall-back to “Unity-2d”.  This provides a near identical experience on initial inspection.

I'll try to keep an open mind, but from where I am sitting right now, if Unity doesn't make some MAJOR LEAGUE improvements before 11.10 is released, I'll sit on 10.10 until I decide which distro to move to.

My attempt to use 11.04 Unity was less than satisfactory; my attempt at 11.04 Kubuntu was less than satisfactory. I'm happy with 10.10 Gnome for the time being. But there are too many options to settle for something that just seems half-baked.

If the current versions of Ubuntu are not satisfactory,  you can still use any distro based on 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx). Support does not end for this version until April 2013:

Ubuntu

Linux Mint 9

Ultimate Edition 2.7

Support for Ubuntu 10.10 ends in April 2012.

Yuppers, it's not that far out.

I noted that you used UE. I loaded it on one of the systems I tinker about with (it's probably had 100 installs on it in the past year or so). I didn't tinker with it enough to really see what made it special, so I didn't use it anywhere else. It got overwritten by another install.

So why do you use it? Does it have some functionality that is really better than the "normal" installation? Will/does it have the same Unity issues that we talked about?

The desktop and UI is just too significant to fritz around with like that. I can say that the #1 issue I have had with clients not wanting to switch to linux is just that -- they are used to how windoze works, and don't want to switch. The reason I stuck with Ubuntu was that the gnome WM/UI was close enough to windoze that my clients liked it.

In fact, earlier in the day on Monday, I turned over an (ex)windoze system to a new client that was running 10.10, and she loved it! I'm afraid that she'd have bawked at the Unity interface that 11.04 has. It just looks too different.

Oh well, that's life, right? Perhaps I'm just getting too old and crotchety....
