Ubuntu annoyances

For some strange reason, the Ubuntu people decided that the latest release should mimic Mac OS as much as possible. The default background is now purple, eerily similar to the Mac OS default. And they decided to move the buttons to the left hand side, just like on a Mac. Which is annoying. Not because I am used to Windows, but because if you were used to previous versions of Ubuntu, you’d be very annoyed.

Rant over, here’s how to fix it: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/13535/move-window-buttons-back-to-the-right-in-ubuntu-10.04/

I have decided to switch to Linux my equal-primary platform, as I am going to be developing my next project using open source tools. I may as well use an open source operating system as well. Also it was an excuse to buy a bigger, better, faster (but probably not stronger) hard drive.

That is all.
