Ubuntu 11.04 - More Reactions from Users

Filed under

The debate is not over yet. Ever since we published the Ubuntu 11.04 review, feedbacks from readers have been pouring in. And I have to concede that a good majority of those responses are really critical of Canonical's Unity strategy. Though I really liked the new Unity approach to desktop, frequent crashes are starting to really frustrate me. I wonder how a first time Linux user is going to feel like after installing the 'latest' 'stable' Ubuntu 11.04. We have already featured a bunch of reactions from users before, here are some more.

"I think Canonicals biggest problem is the 6 month release cycle, every other problem is related to this, its bug number one for Canonical if you will. If Canonical are really aiming for the mainstream market do they really expect an average user to do a major upgrade every six months? Should they instead stick to the LTS's and be left with massively outdated software? Windows XP (a 10 year old OS) users have more updated software available to them than Lucid users, this system cannot work.

Lessons From Volkswagen

  • MEP: "Car manufacturers should make their software available for review"
    Car manufacturers should be obliged to make their motor management software available for review, Paul Tang, a Dutch member of the European Parliament for the Labour Party, requested in questions to the European Commission. Such a measure should prevent the manipulation of the emissions tests, in which Volkswagen was recently caught by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
  • VW’s Cheating Proves We Must Open Up the Internet of Things
    It’s been a rough year for the Internet of Things. Security researchers uncovered terrifying vulnerabilities in products ranging from cars to garage doors to skateboards. Outages at smart home services Wink and Google’s Nest rendered customers’ gadgets temporarily useless. And the Volkswagen emissions scandal, though not precisely an Internet of Things issue, has exposed yet another issue with “smart” physical goods: the possibility of manufacturers embedding software in their products designed to skirt regulations.
