Ubuntu 13.10 is a buggy and hopeless mess. Why it sucks so much.
I have been trying out the Ubuntu 13.10 distribution on my PC and I have been experiencing so many bugs it is not funny. The Network Manager program is not working and there are so many error pop-ups on the desktop with packages that do not work at all. This is beyond a joke. Windows 8.1 works flawlessly in comparison. Why are Canonical allowed to release such a horrendously buggy product? I cannot believe that this Ubuntu distribution used to be quite good; and now it is buggy beyond belief. This bug is quite common on the Ubuntu 13.10 release and this release needs to be fixed pronto. No one is going to use this heap of crap if it is not fixed soon. I am very angry that this poor excuse for a Linux distribution seemed to work very well initially and now it is throwing up errors all of the time. What an absolute waste of bandwidth downloading this crap. Better to use Fedora 19 instead. Another annoying bug in 13.10 is the fact that when I configured dual monitors using the EXACT configuration I used for Fedora; the monitors would be the wrong way around and I would have to load the AMD Catalyst Control Centre to fix it.
That should not happen in 2013; it works perfectly with Fedora; why not with Ubuntu? I was not using Wayland or anything. But Linux Mint or Fedora will be better choices in the future. Linux Mint if you wish to play your multimedia content and enjoy music and Fedora if you want to use Xen virtualization or other server tasks. Red Hat Enterprise Linux is another good choice. But it uses even older packages than Debian Stable. I use Debian 7.1 on my laptop. I am very happy with that. But Canonical need to get their act together. I will use Fedora in the future instead of Ubuntu. Canonical`s distribution is far too unstable. Definitely not ready for the mainstream at all. Get a real Linux distribution: http://www.linuxmint.com/. I tried to fix the Ubuntu installation using a chroot. This is the error message that I got: http://www.securitronlinux.com/bejiitaswrath/ubuntu-13-10-does-not-even-work-properly-when-you-use-a-chroot-to-attempt-to-fix-it/. The chroot technique for logging into a Linux installation does work well with Gentoo and Linux Mint; but not well with Ubuntu 13.10.
