Hi there Fedonerds,
First of all: I'm a Windows person, so I'm lazy and I like to click to run the Win installer, not wasting my time searching for solutions over a simple driver or program installation and so on. Also, I'm a Windows person and that don't mean I don't know anything about computers.
I've tested Fedora for a couple of days and I don't like it! I've tried to tap the touchpad (Synaptic) twice emulating the double click of my mouse but didn't work. A simple task Fedora can't do it right. You'll say: "It's a proprietary driver" and I say: "so what, is it so difficult in 2012 to write some decent code?".
I'm enjoying this forum just because my Fedora is now useless: I was about change the touchpad's setting and the cursor has never moved again. Lucky of me I have my Windows 7 64-bits running in my laptop and you'll probably think it's not cool, but it works fine.
Finally, I have to say I was unfortunate and I installed the KDE GUI which is kind of ugly and childish, don't have a pro look either. One thing is being free software and blah blah and other quite different is to have bad taste.
That was my Fedora experience. I'm not getting up Linux, I'll try another distro.

Re: Synaptic

No support questions asked. Thread moved to the "Reviews, Rants & Things That Make You Scream" sub-forum.
Thread closed since the OP thoroughly had his say and his last sentence seems sort of final. Additional comments seem pointless to me.
Closed Thread

drivers, kde, synaptic, ugly desktop
