Ubuntu is REALLY pissing me off today, so I’m going to tell you why.
On Windows ? Make about 16 pages your home pages, make sure 8 of them have a TON of flash, empty your cache, close FF then reopen. That’s how slow it is here.
Good FTP editors on Windows let you make intelligent choices (“Are you sure you want to store this ftp password ?”) and then re-using the program makes things easier. Ubuntu ? No damn way. Every single bloody time I want to connect it asks for my damn password. More secure ? No – it makes me want to change all my password to “cat”.
Liferea. Best there is ? Good grief. FeedDemon on Windows beats it anyday.
Why is Linux touted as being better ? It’s not. it’s just different. And slower.
Honestly, this FTP editor is, right now, a fantastic reason to stick the XP disc back in the drive. I use it daily for several sites. It is essential – and right now I’m left with stupid mess that takes much much longer to get working and is more unstable. I’d have thought that the kingdom of beards and sandals would have come up with a better solution. Maybe they ask their wives for ID whenever they want to come back in the house – can’t be too careful with all these strangers around eh ?
Right now, Linux looks like it is being difficult purely for the sake of it.
