Ubuntu 11.04 - More Reactions from Users

Filed under
Ubuntu

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 Should they instead stick to the LTS's and be left with massively outdated software?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.

Steam Controller Kernel Driver Is Landing In The Linux 4.18 Kernel

The Linux 4.18 kernel will feature the initial Steam Controller kernel driver that works without having to use the Steam client or using third-party user-space applications like the SC-Controller application. A few months back we reported on a kernel driver being worked on for the Steam Controller by an independent user/developer outside of the gates of Valve. In part through reverse-engineering, Rodrigo Rivas Costa has been working on this native Steam Controller Linux kernel driver that works for both USB cable and wireless modes of the Steam Controller and is a proper HID driver.

KDevelop 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 released

KDevelop 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 released We today provide a stabilization and bugfix release with version 5.2.2 and 5.2.3. 5.2.2 was tagged 6 weeks ago, but we never managed to release it because we did not have the patience to fix the Windows installers in time due to a broken CI. Windows installers are provided for 5.2.3 again. We'll only provide source tarballs for 5.2.2 and we encourage everyone to just skip this release and use 5.2.3 which contains a few more bug fixes. This is a bugfix-only release, which introduces no new features and as such is a safe and recommended update for everyone currently using KDevelop 5.2.1.
