Suggestion for Ubuntu/Linux
I understand that many Linux systems (including Ubuntu) are now trying to make the system as user friendly as possible. I have been enjoying Ubuntu since Ubuntu 7.10.
One thing that I have noticed for myself and many dedicated Linux/Ubuntu users is that we are 'stuck' in our own ways.
What I mean is that regardless what the 'Standard' applications an Ubuntu release may include, I (and I am sure many of the users) would spend the first many hours, uninstalling all the 'new' applications and installing my (our) favourite applications. I don't see this as a bad thing, just that this shows that those 'favourite' applications carter to our own unique requirements/
What I would like to suggest is to provide options during initial installation/
I believe that by doing this, we are moving away from the 'status quo' applications that we do not have choice but to install it (sounds like Microsoft who install different applications regardless).
P.S. KUDOS to many improvements to 10.04. What i immediately noticed is Bluetooth headset. I used to have to manually run a script and change a couple of setups everytime I was going to use my Bluetooth headset. NOW, it is as easy as turn on the headset, change the device I would like to use for sound output. THANKS!!!
