Tux Machines (TM)-specific
I have pretty much quit using Vista and Ubuntu 7.04 after several hardware compatibility errors and software errors I decided to move back to Windows XP and 2000 Server. So why did I make this decision? Why earlier versions of Windows. Three words: compatibility, reliability and predictability.
Windows Vista was fine technically. I didnt have a bunch of issues with it but the issues I did have were indeed showstoppers.
So whats wrong with Ubuntu 7.04? simply put. 7.04 sucks. If this is supposed to be a Windows killer they have some major work to do. First, they include the crappy Prism54 driver which everyone knows is flawed and it wouldnt detect the 3 wireless USB adaptors or 1 PCMCIA card that I have. Blacklist it and use ndiswrapper right?
