In many respects, Ubuntu is pretty cool and does a lot of things right. But for 
an OS with that momentum, it does releases with surprisingly big fuck-ups. Like 
the network manager not being able to remember static configurations. Or 
session management being plain utterly broken. And these things simply do not 
get fixed. Either you are lucky and they are fixed in the next release, or they 
are not even fixed then, and other surprises may come up. I have the feeling 
the only updates that releases ever receive are security updates. There is 
seldomly anything that unbreaks major mishaps like that. From reading some bug 
reports, even for bugs that affect a lot of users, Ubuntu does not have or is 
not willing to spend any resources on getting certain problems fixed (complain 
to upstream). I thought they have a real company and some developer resources 
behind Ubuntu... maybe not so much anymore.

Best regards,
