So I’m back on Xubuntu again as none of the other OSes I tried gave me satisfactory results…or they just plain died on me. Either way, I have Ubuntu set up the way I like it and I’m all right with using it.
I’m okay with it for a few reasons:
- It’s officially supported by Dell, which is the brand of my laptop.
- Being supported by Dell, my wifi works as it’s broadcom and has been notoriously hard to work with for some time.
- I don’t have to worry about broken dependencies.
- If I’m too lazy to build from source most places has .deb packages built specifically for Ubuntu. This helps if I’m in a rush.
- Community support for Ubuntu is very good. The people are friendly, even if you are using a different distribution.
- They have LTS (Long Term Service) distributions, of which I am using one. If something goes wrong, you can get support from Canonical.
- Free is still free, and like free.
Crunchbang was nice, while it lasted, until it decided to declare war on me and my computer. Then it became as useful as a football bat. So I am now back and square one and really okay with it.
