I'm trying Ubuntu 5.10, after a brief play with 5.04 some months ago.
Here's my top-ten list of annoyances:
#1) BASIC packages not installed. Like... gcc, configure, automake and autoconf. DOZENS of software apps depend on these components to be available in order to be built.
#2) NO PINE, NO PICO. WTF?. I realize there's mutt, but still, a distro that doesn't include PINE and PICO is not a distro I'm interested in using. Sheesh, even ancient Suse 8.2 (the first Linux distro I used) included PINE/PICO. SAME WITH 'joe' (text editor).
#3) What's with the BROWN color scheme? It sucks!.
#4) That "drums" sound scheme... again... nice for the first 30 minutes. Then the drums playing with every event makes my brain hurt.
#5) WHAT? No Sun J2RE 5.0 update 6 installed? WTF? what gives?. And no, I don't consider Blackdown 1.4.2 ancient releases of the GNU catch-up releases to be serious. Maybe when the Apache Foundation releases a compatible JVM...
#6) No Flash plug-in pre-installed in the browser?. WTF?
