I found the article after hearing from a lot of people saying "Linux sucks" without arguments, so here we have them. It's from October, 2010, but I think some points are still relevant. http://delogics.blogspot.ru/2010/10/why-ubuntu-sucks.html 1. Community - the author said that majority of people in Ubuntu community are still under the impression that Ubuntu differs from Windows, being its alternative. 2. Next point derives from previous - the author is shocked watching threads like "what is the root directory", "how to add a new user", "how to install software" and so. I can agree, as I said once, one should better read documentation and wiki pages - they exist for this purpose. 3. Third one is about package quality, though using Xubuntu I have never had any problems with it. If you had - let us know. 4. 5. 6. Well, as we can see now, no problems with it. 7. Hardware incompatibility. For me, everything works just fine, if you have something - let us know. 8. I was using some Windows systems, Ubuntu is very fast I think. So, I posted it to know opinions. Personally, I like Ubuntu, I don't really like Unity, but it depends on your taste of course. I don't think it sucks.
