1 For, 3 Against. Now make that 2 For.
Having just started with Ubuntu, I didn't (and to a very large extent, still don't) know an awful lot about it, what it looks like, how it performs, what I'll miss from Windows. Frankly, I'm struggling to take in all the info that's being thrown at me.
So now, because I've installed something to make it easier to DO WHAT I WANT TO DO, I've committed some sort of cyber crime? I don't want to install yet another version of Linux, I'm having enough problems with this one, thanks, and I'm not going to throw away 3-4 weeks of effort just because someone thinks it is wrong to install something that didn't come in the original package. Sorry purists, but I'll install what I want on my system if it makes it easier for me.
I'm sorry to see the above remarks, it reminds me of the early days of Windows with 'Experts' with a capital E shouting 'Newbie' 'Newbie' at anyone who had the temerity to ask a basic question about the system.
I doubt I'll be back on these forums. I don't need the Experts telling me what I'm dis/allowed to install, hope that's what you all wanted.
