- I am a very happy Ubuntu user.
- That said, Ubuntu is not perfect. <gasp!> Yes, it does have some problems. These are outlined in more detail in my Ubuntu Report Card (2009) article.
- Out of a desire to help, I’ve been compiling feature requests from fellow Ubuntu users. What has kept you from switching to Ubuntu full-time, and what do you hope Ubuntu changes in the future?
My next series of articles are the culmination of emails and comments received as a result of point #3.
You may be wondering why I’ve chosen to title this article “10 Days of Ubuntu 10.10 Feature Requests.” If you haven’t already, now would be a good time to read my case for the one feature Ubuntu 10.04 needs. In that article I make the case for Ubuntu 10.04 being a “featureless” release – e.g. one that focuses solely on stability and performance. I stand by that opinion, and to that end I believe that Ubuntu 10.10 could be a great place to focus on a feature-heavy release (having solved all it’s stability and performance issues in 10.04, of course :p).
So here you have it – 10 feature requests that I (and many others) would love to see by the time Ubuntu 10.10 rolls around.
(Disclaimer: efforts to implement many of these features are already underway, so kudos to the Ubuntu team in advance!)
(Disclaimer: I realize that some in the Linux community will take great offense at my interchangeable use of “Ubuntu” and “Linux”, but rest assured – I mean no harm by this, and I am well aware that Ubuntu and Linux are not the same thing. However, for purposes of clarity and brevity these articles will use the two terms interchangeably.)
