Other things are like fonts on the desktop changing, icon sizes, etc., just because I tried different settings, and changing them back to what it was.
Also, they say that you can install different packages without having to restart your computer, but if I want to open the program through the desktop menu, I have to restart the computer. Otherwise, the program either isn't there, or it doesn't work, and won't work even if I reboot. Then: purge the program, reinstall, reboot, and then it works.
Now I know that people using linux don't like hearing this, but i had much less problems with Windows XP. They all say that you get no viruses in Linux! So? I hadn't had an active virus in years with WinXP. I had AVG Free, Sbybot, Zonealarm firewall, used Hijackthis, Blacklight (though I never knew if it actually worked, it never gave me any results on anyone's computer), and tested other malware detection programs.
Others will say you have to reboot under windows constantly. I've had my computer on 24/7 for the past years, even under Windows. So far, I've already rebooted my Kubuntu more then the number of times that I had to reboot XP over the past year. I've had Linux for about 3 months now, tested it in dual boot with windows a few months before that.
I've read in certain Linux forums that KDE4 is the best kernel yet, but because it's still new enough, they haven't gotten all the bugs out of it yet. Some have suggested to going back to an older version of Kubuntu that had KDE3, but it isn't worth the trouble for me. I've been looking at other distributions, and one that has got my attention so far is OpenSUSE. HAs anyone any comments on that one?
The reason I stay with Linux and not go back to Windows is for the reason that I've learned so much more about computers in the past three months than in the past year, lol. Also, you can't modify windows as much as Linux. AND there is so much more support for Linux. Windows doesn't push people to use the command line as much as Linux. Which i find is important in knowing how a computer works, and fixing problems yourself.
I just want to edit that this topic is only to rant and rave about our likes and dislikes of certain Linux distributions. This is not a help thread. If you're looking to solve problems you have with your distribution, have a look at this forum.
