My other thing about windows is its repetitive ‘dont close the computer we are doing updates’ type prompt.
This. WTF wants a notebook to start updating on shutdown. I got places to be when I close my notebook. My train is not going to wait for my Windows update to finish. One of the MANY design decisions I consider stupid regardless how large their usability panel was. There are more but it will quickly become a rant so I’ll stop here.
Ubuntu is not perfect but at least I get to decide on ANYTHING I want to decide on. I liked Gnome2, Unity and did not like Gnome 3 from the start. I did not like them removing desktop icons. Budgie did let me have them so I switchted. In 20.04 the desktop icons are back and look really nice (I must admit) but they already lost me … I am sticking with Budgie for as long as possible. And since I was asked to join UB by Jacob and I started coding it will be a long time. I hope.
