Does anyone else not like Ubuntu 12.04 LTS?

I've been using it for three days now after using Ubuntu 10.10 since the end of 2010, and I hate 12.04. They make everything so difficult. Nothing advanced is set up from the get-go, they hide EVERYTHING on you, even after you remove Unity and revert back to Gnome... I'm very tempted to uninstall and go with Arch or Debian.

Anyone else try it yet?

Not a huge fan of ubuntu personally. Though it's really ground breaking from the perspective of a simple to install desktop linux for people who are new to unix.

I haven't used 12 so I can't comment. How about linux mint? Isn't the focus of that one to have an un-ubuntued ubuntu?

There are two different perspective users here though. Ubuntu really is slated for the non programming community or those who need to set up a work station quickly.

Setting up arch, slack, *BSD, gentoo (or even linux from scratch) is for someone who needs a custom build for appliance, desktop or server. I found these best to learn from as you get to script your own policies which make them ideal for a programmer or hacker( in the tinkering sense of the term). Also less is more from a server sided security perspective.

I haven't tried out 12.04 yet, but probably will after the formal launch. I've got a machine that I had running 11.04 then .10 and while yes, everything's hidden... so are most things in linux land, either your comfortable in terminal or you're not. As UNIXgod said though, the big benefit is an out of the box solution that is about as friendly as windows or mac (better in some cases) And it's fast as hell to get *something* up and running with a nice relatively functional GUI. Unity is buggy though -- which is unfortunate, and it seems to be exceedingly difficult to get gnome3... or at least when i tried i broke unity and caused a scene.
