Previous versions were ok, but the latest release sucks. If that's the direction
they're going with it, I'll get off the bus now.

Ubuntu is simply not ready for prime time.  I doubt it or any other free-range
OS ever will be.  There simply isn't the tech support necessary to fix it all.

I installed it in a spare partition a while back. I'm a little tired of
all the hype. Ubuntu works well enough for internet use but most (not
all) of the apps lack the polish of their windows equivalent where they
exist and it updates virtually every time I bring it up. I have no
problems with winxp and windows 7 works very well. My main complaint
with windows is some software and my scanner cease working when updating
from winxp to windows 7, but Linux isn't much help here also.
For all you people out there, use whatever suits your purpose, but cease
and desist trying to sell your pet preferences to the whole world,
nobody is paying you to do so and nobody cares.

I've been using it a fair bit in recent months and it takes me straight back
to Windows 3.1, almost uncannily so when you have to keep dropping out to a
DOS prompt .... oops, sorry, terminal ... to do anything that's not run of
the mill.

It requires activation. Still using Avira Personal.

Yes.  It works really well.

I've tried it twice. For me, it slows things down considerably. Especially
obvious in opening Office files. Sometimes MsMpEng.exe will eat up
processor use like crazy. I thought maybe they would have gotten it fixed
by the time I installed it a second time. I've got a Core 2 Quad CPU so it
doesn't affect me as much as some others, but it's still too aggravating
for me. I'm  back to Avira and happy.

This part is downright bizarre.  I've installed MSSE on about 30 customer
machines with no slowdown at all versus Avast.  Then I put it on one machine
and the thing crawled.  At first I couldn't figure it out, but sure enough,
when I took out MSSE and put Avast back it was fine.

The machine was an XP SP3 with a Pent 4 processor.  And yet I've gotten good
results with slower machines.
