One of the other things I hate about Ubuntu is that configuring stuff like login themes is a pain. Canonical have done the same as a pre-build PC manufacturer - taken the software then mutilated it with its own 'logos' and 'artwork'. Take for example, Dell. All good when it comes to hardware choice, but the version of Vista on my mum's PC was changed so that there was an annoying mouse glitch every so often. The part of the mouse pointer which does the clicking (aka the tip) sometimes changes to the base of the pointer (the 'stalk'). Without warning, this becomes very frustrating, and sometimes dangerous to open documents. Another example is my 5 year old Compaq PC. It originally had Windows XP, and after a few hours of use the thing would freeze. Installed the Vista beta when it came out, and the problem disappeared. Canonical - taken Gnome, added custom artwork, made it harder for the advanced user to access functions. OK, Ubuntu is meant to be a user-friendly OS that encourages people to switch from Windoze, but couldn't there be some way to enable it?
