Well, its been a good run, Ubuntu. Your wonderful software repositories will always hold a special place in my heart. But with the newest update, feature bloat has made all of your default programs nearly unusable, your startup time has gone from 5 to nearly 30 seconds and your unity interface, while promising, is so slow and convoluted that it is nearly unusable. The new “software portal” is all about a shiny interface and expensive applications. This is no longer a linux machine, but rather a small boy on the playground trying to play in a realm that is way out of reach, and for good reason. If you can get your resource management under control, I will come back, until then.
