Why Karmic Koala Sucks
I’ve just upgraded to ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala. I should not have.
The Login Screen is ugly. It displays the computer’s users. There is no way to change it. And nothing else, for that matter. And it is booting SLOWER than Jaunty by 9 seconds.
Everything seems to be slower. My customized desktop theme fell apart.
No Hungarian spell-check dictionary available for Firefox 3.5.
And the too-tiny-font problem is still here.
It became slow and unstable. It’s on the verge of being unusable.
My customized xterm size was overwritten to the ridiculous 80×24 during the upgrade. Config Wizardry again.
6. Gnometris (Tetris)
The biggest disaster: it is completely broken!
I know. I’m an evil and rude bastard. I should not criticize people who kindly develop software in their spare time. But you have been warned:
If you’ve got Jaunty, do not, by any means, upgrade to Karmic.
Actually, I wanted to rearrange my partitions anyway. Where did I put that Jaunty CD?
