  1. A "buy free" button? Wtf happened to the "install" button?
    It's just one example but I'm not sure I like the philosophy of canonical, if they keep going down that Windows/Apple path, I may have to find another distro…

  2. With the rate especially Gnome team keeps "streamlining features" i.e. removing GUI options, soon you will need terminal just to change the wallpaper.

  3. In some ways i would agree, but in many i dont, you need to open a terminal,(be it terminal or guake or anything) and then type the command, password and confirm, to be honest this new method is either exactly the same speed or faster
