Ubuntu means "joke" in Swahili
Ok, you guys have been pulling my leg for the past six months by telling me how great Ubuntu is, right?
I mean, it's like in the Boy Scouts where they find a Tenderfoot and ask him to go find a "left handed windjammer" from the other troops at jamboree and when you go ask them, they laugh because there is no such thing.
So, I decide to run the Ubuntu Live CD to see whether I can run Web Rhapsody via Firefox.
I downloaded it and burned it using K3b. It identified it and did the Md5 checksums verification.
I boot with it. Well, first of all, the install program looks like something from the DOS 2.0 days! It's all COWS and really crappy looking.
Then, it gets to the "Installers" step and starts saying it can't find stuff -- sorry, but if it pbuttes the Md5 checksum, then it has something wrong with it.
So I manually skip that step and go to Network. It reports that I have no NIC card, but that I might want to use "Firewire" -- I say no thanks and end it there (if it can't find my network card, I figure there's no way I can test a web site with it).
Thus, my intuition about Ubuntu is confirmed -- it was designed by Microsoft aparitchniks to give Linux a bad name.

Then care to explain to us just how Ubuntu can be so non-deterministic as to make this happen. You...
