Why I changed to Ubuntu GNOME Studio at 16.04

I use Ubuntu GNOME on all my machines. I write and maintain my quick install scripts here:


After the new 16.04 LTS, I knew some things could change. Some did, some didn’t. I will update this as the developers fix any problems.

KDE I still can’t stand.

Ubuntu (Unity) is a yeah-yeah-yeah-boo.

Ubuntu GNOME is great with mods.

Xubuntu is robust and delightfully boring as always.

Ubuntu Studio (Xubuntu-based) seems to have gotten a face lift. (a change for the better)

[rant] Before I get into these by item, I need to say: If the repo gods can get xscreensaver updated in time for 16.04 after two weeks of boot nags, what the hades is wrong with ownCloud and their grabastic version-named client repo URLs that have no 16.04… in April of an LTS year!? Only ownCloud rejected me on a GitHub bug fix pull—they wanted the bug, they said.  · · · →
