I think we need to wait for bug #65535 before addressing the win64 issue

2017-05-24 Thread You Expected Name But It's Me,
Regards from Kaliningrad, Russia

That bug is being fixed here partially by now, see below.

Just to make sure, I visited some PC shops around and, to my surprise,
found some computers with Ubuntu and few with FreeDOS (and, as
consultant said, any linux distro from list could be installed for
free).

The fun is what some own Linux distro is used (AFAIK) by Russian Ministry of 
Internal Affairs, and there is military Rosa linux (totally shitty from what I 
heard but still). 
If only we could make schools to teach students to use Linux systems instead, 
that would change the game. 

I estimate the prevalence of free software in education here as about
15-18%, maybe 25% based on what I see in university.

I am not an Ubuntu developer, but as far as I know, lately most things
happening, happen in the background / under the hood (e.g. X11
replacement). And of course this might cause more bugs rising
(temporary). And yes, I also experience some issues, such as
[Bug 792085] Re: Automatic remount of safely removed USB 3.0 drive
which finally got fixed (even if on launchpad it is not yet marked as
fix released).
But I am still fine with the overall stability and I use Ubuntu all
day on my primary work laptop and several other machines/devices.

I found 2 bugs you are following which are older. One is Bug #304345:
"File chooser dialog doesn't provide network access" - which is a
duplicate of another bug which has been fixed. The other is Bug
#971219: "Remmina Crashes with when connecting to some RDP hosts"
which in reality is not an Ubuntu issue only. People write that it
depends on the certificate on the remote Windows machine. And oh yes,
there is a third issue that is related to launchpad itself. Is that
what you identify as reduced overall Ubuntu stability? What I see at
co-workers and customers what they fight with Windows, I am still way
better off with Linux.

My experience is that the better details on a problem you serve the
better the answer is, what you get.
So maybe try to provide more exact details on your problems to help
the developers finding the bug faster.

I'm using Ubuntu since 8.04, and have noticed something. It was improving with 
every single release, but since 12.04 I don't see neither the progress nor at 
least stability: it is getting worse. The 16.04 tortures me with many glitches 
on the daily basis, and I found here a bug report already submitted by other 
people for every problem I have. Most of those reports are YEARS old and still 
are UNASSIGNED. This tells me: Ubuntu doesn't give a s**t to user experience

So I think this particular bug will never be resolved, at list because no one 
cares. And, btw, Ubuntu became so s**tty that I switched to other distro after 
many years with Ubuntu.

I suggest changing the title of this bug to :

"Non-free systems have a majority market share"

which is certainly the original intended idea of this bug.

(Of course Google Android is not a free system because it contains non-
free Google Mobile Services.)

And therefore re-opening the bug.

2017-02-27 Thread Martin Wildam
PC and laptop times are not over, no, tablets and mobile phones are
not an alternative. Alternative devices may obsolete a PC at many
places, but: For those who want a PC or laptop if they go to a shop,
they still pretty everywhere only find Windows. There should be some
hardware that comes preinstalled with Linux/Ubuntu (and maybe not only
the old slow hardware), but this is not the case (neither for the
older hardware).

So this bug is very clearly not-solved. It might be obsolete, if
Android is used on PCs also and even the CAD users have there software
running on Android also.

Let us ponder for a moment on the Founding Bug of Ubuntu. Now that
Shuttleworth has accepted to port Ubuntu as the official platform for
the Windows Subsystem for Linux. Maybe it is time to think about that
"fix released". I know, « the world has changed », « we've come to
better terms »... Microsoft does NOT change. You don't "come to better
terms" with Microsoft, you leave your project be abducted by Microsoft.

I think our fellow Mark closed this bug too soon. Too hastily.

So long as WSL exists, the bug will exist.

[Bug 1] Re: Microsoft has a majority market share

2017-01-04 Thread brian russell
bug 1 is a platform monopoly problem. In the case of Ebay, Uber, Airbnb,
Windows, most people are on each of these platforms, because, well,
everyone else is on that platform. Not because the platform is better.

Fortunately, it seems there is a bugfix emerging for the plaform
monopoly problem, and its called crowdacting.

crowdacting.org

it will take some time before truly massive migration like a windows to
linux migration is possible, but smaller migrations are sure to start
taking place and inspiring larger migrations.

You mean 80 % of the computer usage that nobody really needs is now
done using tablets and phones. Apart from storekeepers that nowadays
do their checklists and confirm their good receipts via tablet I
barely see people doing their real work via phone or tablet (at least
apart from writing emails). Or would you say 80 % of the computer work
is e-mailing. mmmhh - could even be... ;-)

My experience is, that everybody still uses desktop or laptop - at
least for the more sophisticated work. I don't know a single person
who owns just a phone or tablet and not also a desktop or laptop
computer. Of course I would put desktops and laptop together in the
group. Anyway, Bug 1 is not fixed yet!

Hi :)
While this is still true and unlikely to change many people are using
chromebooks, tablets, phones and other devices to do things that they
previously would have had to use a desktop to do.  Laptops have also become
much more popular too.  A few years ago some study allegedly found that 80%
of computer usage is now done using tablets and phones.

For tablets and phones gnu is king.  Android is a flavour of
gnu on a layer of java.  Blackberry is gnu, and of course
Chrome is too.  iPads and iPhones, really anything Apple, is a flavour of
BSD, which is another unix-based system = practically a sister/brother of
gnu  Apparently only about 1% of hand-helds (tablets and phones etc)
use a Windows-based system.  Windows has one major disadvantage in trying
to run on hand-helds which is that it's a huge great big bloated behemoth
despite their best efforts at slashing it down-to-size.  It just about
manages to cope on laptops but when they tried to push it onto netbooks it
performed so badly that it killed the entire netbook market.  We see some
resurgence of the netbook market through Chromebooks but people are still
wary of that form-factor, thanks to Windows.

Windows are attempting to rewrite Windows to work on Arm chips, having
recently abandoned their earlier recent attempt, but it's likely they will
still need vast amounts of resources, such as one would reasonably expect
from a desktop/laptop - and still not work on other form-factors.

So wearables (incl watches) and handhelds, and chromebooks are likely to
keep using unix-based systems, usually specifically gnu


This bug was first raised when the word "desktop" covered all the
form-factors that could be used in small-business and by families or other
private usage.  Nowadays the term "desktop", even if expanded to include
laptops, only represents under 20% of that market.

I visited some local PC stores (middle-sized city in Italy) and I attempted to 
buy a machine without any proprietary software.

All the computers on sale had proprietary software.

[Bug 1] Re: Microsoft has a majority market share

2016-06-27 Thread রিং
Hi I am Shazedur Rahim Joardar Ring from Bangladesh. In here the vendors
like hp and dell brings up the laptops with Ubuntu or OpenSuse pre-
installed but when it reaches to the peoples hand it got the distros
demolished by the IT support people of the retailers and fenestra
(synonym of MS ..) is loaded with some pirated software like photoshop,
maya etc. This is how bad it is going so far.

Since 2011 in here in Bangladesh, FOSS Bangladesh had organized 80+
events in the various universities, colleges and schools to aware the
next generation-the pupils about the freedom or liberation they need in
the digital world. We had also organized some "GNU/Linux installation
fest" to give real end user support. We had forums in local languages in
here in Bangladesh where the end users are getting online support in
using distros like Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, OpenSuse etc.

Approximately 500K peoples get noticed about their freedom, get the end
user support and began their fight for their freedom in the digital
world and makes sure it sustained since 2011.

Now a days pupils of various universities in here goes to the market
with pen drives with live distros and checkout the hardwares before
buying them, if those happily working with ubuntu or not!

This is how this Bug#1 is going to be fixed, someday near future. But we
shouldn't get relaxed of thinking that, the Fix will sustain forever. We
all need to raise our voice and make it loud to louder for our freedom.
Every day, Every second of it needs hard labour for being liberated. :)

@Martin Wildam +1

This bug was never fixed. Not even close.

And the word "liberation" was added later and I don't see any of it.

Microsoft "loves" Linux? What about open source being a cancer a few
years ago?

Yes, they are afraid but, as always, they know what they are doing.

We, on the other hand, do we know what we are doing? Letting things flow
and say Android fixed this bug?

Where I work we only sell machines with Windows preinsalled and my
machine uses Windows.

I am "free" to use an Ubuntu live session for troubleshooting purposes
only.

Sad But true.


Take care all,

This is simply not the case. Sorry for repeating, but it seems to me
that somehow the original idea has been forgotten. And a smartphone is
not a PC and a tablet isn't either! I do not know a single person
using a smart phone or tablet as a replacement for the PC - in best
case those mobile devices are used _in addition to_ PC or laptop.

Re: [Bug 1] Re: Microsoft has a majority market share

2016-04-05 Thread Martin Wildam
Neither the way Microsoft will/says/wants bringing Ubuntu to Windows
nor the rise of Android on the mobile phones is IMHO an argument to
mark Bug 1 solved.

Even from the usability of the basic operating system I think there
are still to-dos left to make more people move to Linux - apart from
the bigger problem of 3rd-party Windows-only-application lockin and
dependency of formats that are Windows-only (only yesterday I was
confronted with a QuarkXpress user and couldn't tell, what Linux app
can open and edit them).

I mean there are basics like this:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/285493/how-to-show-full-date-and-time-in-nautilus-files-3-6-list-view
- Not sure if everything fixed in
https://launchpad.net/~mc3man/+archive/ubuntu/nauty-mods has found
it's way into the latest Ubuntu 14.04 and into 16.04 (will check when
it's out).

Or like this:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nautilus/+bug/792085

There are other annoyances and none of them will hold back those who
know well about the benefits of Linux, but it may hold back new users
when they try Ubuntu for a week and struggle with such basic things.
And as long as users do not definitely request and demand for Linux
they won't get it from the hardware vendors because they don't care if
the users don't care.

Best regards, Martin.

The fix for Bug #1 is to spread free software everywhere. With the
recent Ubuntu in/on Windows announcement, (many many many) millions of
people who couldn't access or participate in Ubuntu will soon have that
ability, giving them a glimpse into our world and a chance they've never
had.

We're making good progress. Or, stated more poetically:

2016-04-01 Thread Fernando Casar
This is the time for this bug to be expanded and moved to any other bug-tracker 
that's not part of canonical group ltd.
There are so many issues to be addressed, ie. "the company I believed for more 
than a decade is turning back on my principles"
I understand that having a Linux container on windows is profitable for many 
people who's already running windows on their servers.
But I must stand in the other side what about ms office running on native 
Ubuntu? At most we can struggle to have ms office 2010 running with  wine 
libraries, but having power-point videos in this set-up isn't supported neither 
by Microsoft nor wine nor Canonical.
This leaves us, the users and developers in a huge, asymmetrically driven race 
condition.
At this moment I have the exact same feeling as being ruled by an authoritative 
government.
The involved companies are operating in the same corruption of world states and 
their corrupted slug.
I can't stand for ubuntu nor canonical any more, it is a huge disillusion.

As a side note, I must state that the orthographic correction on this
site  doesn't like ubuntu nor microsoft but Ubuntu and Microsoft, so
please give a thought about how linguistics influence our decisions, and
if you should follow " THE STANDARD" or just give away.

2016-03-31 Thread george2706
I have to agree with @Mark Cariaga (mzc)

The bug was never  sent a proper solution.
The reason is that there are a large base of software running ONLY on Windows.
Wine is hard at this moment to be configured and  there are so many things that 
can go wrong that never 
In order to be able to  fix this bug, wine must be fixed in the same way 
microsoft engineers thought about. It can be done (see reactos for example ) 
but only with the help of entire community

I have to tell that from some point of view, open source comunity was
not so wheel organised in order to fix what need to be fixed instead of
adding and adding more and more features.

So, Microsoft can do such things like "Windows Subsystem for Linux" (ok
some times ago was another similar project with small impact , Windows
Subsystem for Unix ) ) and open source developers are not able to  ? Is
this for real ? Is this a non fixable bug ?

P.S
Why everybody in recruitment use Microsoft Word format instead of open document 
format ??? Have Microsoft win the battle ?

Re: [Bug 1] Re: Microsoft has a majority market share

2015-10-24 Thread Shaun Husain
In 2013 Mark Shuttleworth marked the bug as resolved in Ubuntu since
Android and ios have created diversity in the market which defeats the
issue despite Ubuntu itself not having a direct hand in the shift.  Also,
mentioned in the post was the fact that the desktop os should focus on
creating a better experience for the developer and end user.

I noticed that it hasn't been mentioned, but Microsoft Windows Mobile
has failed to take hold of the mobile market.

That is some serious progress on this bug.   Devs are realizing that

   Microsoft has a majority market share in the new desktop PC
   marketplace. This is a bug which Ubuntu and other projects are meant
   to fix. As the philosophy of the Ubuntu Project states, Our work is
   driven by a belief that software should be free and accessible to
   all.

   Ubuntu software is free. Always was, always will be. Free software
 gives everyone the freedom to use it however they want and share with
 whoever they like. This freedom has huge benefits. At one end of the
 spectrum it enables the Ubuntu community to grow and share its collective
 experience and expertise to continually improve all things Ubuntu. At the
 other, we are able to give access to essential software for those who
 couldn’t otherwise afford it – an advantage that’s keenly felt by
 individuals and organisations all over the world.
* http://www.ubuntu.com/project/about-ubuntu/our-philosophy

   Non-free software leaves users at the mercy of the software owner and
   concentrates control over the technology which powers our society into
   the hands of a few. Additionally, proprietary software stifles
   innovation, maintains artificial scarcities, and enables malicious
   anti-features such as DRM, surveillance, and other monopolistic
   practices.

   This bug is widely evident in the PC industry.

   Steps to repeat:

   1. Visit a local PC store.
   2. Attempt to buy a machine without any proprietary software.

   What happens:

   Almost always, a majority of PCs for sale have Microsoft Windows pre-
   installed. In the rare cases that they come with a GNU/Linux operating
   system or no operating system at all, the drivers and BIOS may be
   proprietary.

   What should happen:

   A majority of the PCs for sale should include only free software.

Add to this that it must at least support the latest LTS. My Dell M4800 is
still only supporting 12.04.x (which has issues solved in later versions,
but might never be backported) even though 14.04 LTS is there.

Reading more of this topic, I noticed that Faldegast (in post #1293) and
torpedolos (in post #1301) also introduced this idea of having a harware
brand for GNU/Linux. Then a few others supported the idea.

These posts have been made in august 2010. FIVE YEARS AGO...
Let's not wait another five years please.

[Bug 1] Re: Microsoft has a majority market share

2015-05-22 Thread mohican

Summary :
The only strategy that could lead to GNU/Linux [Ubuntu] being adopted by a 
large number of users is to do what Apple has done with the Mac : sell 
specifically assembled computers with a distinctive brand (e.g. the Tux) and 
build a user-friendly brand-image through marketing.
-

1. Harware compatibility is the number one problem

I've been installing Ubuntu on friend's computers since 2010. I
installed 12 different machines (4 desktops and 8 laptops). I had
various harware compatibility problems on 75% of these machines !
(mainly related to GPU, Wifi, Bluetooth, ACPI (suspend), brightness,
keyboard special keys, touchpad, kernel mei module and black screen on
the first run). Plus compatibility problems with peripheral hardware
(smartphones, printers, scanners, TV tuners...). This is exhausting.
(And people are not won for Ubuntu : when a friend buys a new machine I
have to do the job again.) I do it only because I am highly motivated.
Highly motivated people are scarce, they cannot change significantly the
marketshare of GNU/Linux.

It is not true that ordinary users can simply download and install Ubuntu 
easily on their machine. This will never happen because new hardware are 
constantly been released without Linux compatibility.
Ordinary people will never buy PCs to install Ubuntu on it. (Ordinary people 
never install OS anyway !)

***Ubuntu need to be sold pre-installed on 100% compatible harware.***

But this is not enough, people will not buy PCs with an alternative OS on it. 
People buy PCs with Windows because they know it and expect it to work 100% (or 
they install a cracked version of Windows on their new PC) - or - if they can 
afford it - they buy Macs*.
*In the last years a lot of people have switched from PCs to Macs. This was a 
lost opportunity for GNU/Linux. But it is not too late.

***Ubuntu need to be sold pre-installed on 100% compatible harware that
has a distinctive GNU/Linux branding.***

Let's call these machines Tux. There should also be Tux-certified peripherals 
or even Tux-peripherals.
When these machines are available in stores, then people will have the choice 
to buy either PCs, Macs or Tuxes.

Why would people buy Tuxes rather than Macs or PCs ?


2. GNU/Linux is unknown or has a designed-for-geeks reputation

They will buy them if a succesful marketing campaign convinces them that :
- Tuxes are as innovative, stable, user-friendly and cool as Macs ;
- Tuxes are even better than Macs because they bring more compatibility with 
other systems and more freedom ;
- It should also be clear that Tuxes are fully integrating with Ubuntu phones 
and FirefoxOS phones.
Tuxes then should sell better than Macs because they will be cheaper. (Tuxes 
should be at the same price as PCs or a little higher.)

Apple is the most successful business in the world. Mostly because they were 
very succesful in building a brand-image.
We have the OS to do better than them. What are we waiting for ?

RE: [ubuntu-marketing] [Bug 1] Re: Microsoft has a majority market share

2014-10-27 Thread Faldegast
Yeah a lot of things have changed. But what's not changed are the fact
that a majority of Internet users are surfing on Windows.

Yeah I remember reading this bug on a Symbian smartphone. The growth of
smartphones and pads are certainly an expression of discontent with
Windows, and a big blow to Microsoft.

But a majority of the users are still on desktops running windows. I
hope that chromeos will defeat windows on this battlefield.

Personally I will not consider this bug solved until Window joins
Internet Explorer's decline, which I think will happen if ChromeOS
success continues.

 Hi :)
 When this bug was first posted even laptops were quite rare.  So the only
 form-factor that people were aware of was desktops.  It is already
 difficult to imagine such a time!
 
 It was after this bug was posted that netbooks came out and they were
 swiftly crushed by clever tactics from MS.  Do you remember going through
 that time?  It was unthinkable that normal users might have access to
 anything non-MS.  That is what this bug-report is about.
 
 If the original poster could go back in time then i am certain there would
 have been at least 3 bug-reports in order to still apply today.  Almost
 everyone who posted to this thread was basing their responses on the solid
 fact that desktop machines were the only form-factor available to normal
 users.
 
 This bug-report was about reaching normal users.
 
 As such it HAS been solved.
 
 Now the whole landscape has changed radically.  There are new words to
 cover technology that hadn't been anticipated outside of Sci-fi.  Many of
 the responses are laughably wrong these days but were quite wise at the
 time.
 
 
 We have an opportunity to recognise that things were different back in the
 old days and an opportunity to cut away legacy stuff that is no longer
 useful.
 
 Continuing with this thread would be much like keeping a bug-report open
 about support for Betamax systems or even VHS ones.  While technically not
 solved it has become largely irrelevant because it fails to account for the
 new landscape.  Of course 1 slight difference is that people still have
 movies that were recorded onto Betamx or VHS ;)

Hi :)
I thought hand-helds had over-taken desktops?  Surely that was the point?
So the majority of users are using non-Windows platforms.  Hence all the
fuss, in magazines and other articles, about the end of the desktops
(which i think we mostly agree is unlikely)

Actually no. This was always about desktop. Of course the fact that many
usecases have an alternative that works on android or chrome have made
things better. But I still can't use Photoshop or Cubase on Linux.

Personally I don't think we have fully won before Microsoft starts
supporting Linux with Office etc. Of course replacing vendor-locked
applications with open source are optimal but so far we have only
succeed with webbrowsers.

If Google succeeds in moving everything into the browser thats a win
against OS monopoly but we should remember that Chrome Store are NOT
Open source. But Native Client and PPAPI is so building an alternate
store is possible and moving offering software in more than one store
are a lot easier than supporting different operating systems.

If need be, bugs can be opened for other form factors.

Ubuntu software is free. Always was, always will be. Free software

[Bug 1] Re: Microsoft has a majority market share

2014-10-23 Thread Páll Haraldsson
Shuttleworth may have closed this bug prematurely (haven't followed all
comments..) based on iOS plus Android having majority over Windows.
Anyway not important now as Android alone seems bigger than Windows now
(including iOS and OS X etc - all others).

@mwildam: although most people I know do have a smartphone (or two - a
private one and a business phone) and maybe also have a tablet, ALL OF
THEM do their main computer work with a PC or laptop. You cannot assume
that most of the serious computer work is done from an Android phone or
tablet.

Why is that? And not sure it's true for all.

For the global perspective most people probably do not have a PC while
they may have a smartphone. You could say they only surf the web..
Programming for Android is even somewhat possible within the OS.
Keyboard (and mouse) can be connected. QT works for Android and I wander
how difficult it is to port most Linux programs to Android. My post on
Ubuntu Touch to the mailing-list being a dead-end and Android
compatibility being essentioal didn't make it there..

In 2013, Android-based devices outsold Windows' 2.8:1 (2:1 in mature
markets) or by 573 million units (estimating the gap to widen much in
2014 and 2015).

In India and other countries Android is the most popular operating
system including for browsing the web; according to Statcounter; Mobile
usage has already overtaken desktop in several countries including
India, South Africa and Saudi Arabia[226] with several countries in
Africa having done so already, including Ethiopia and Kenia (there
mobile is 72.23%)

 @mwildam: [...] ALL OF THEM

 Why is that? And not sure it's true for all.

Because Computer work is not only web surfing and email. Imagine a
photographer, technical designer, architect, lawyers, ..., and pretty
everyone working in IT - just to give a few examples. Imagine all the
people working with branch specific software - e.g. dental technician.
- I cannot imagine any of those working on a smartphone or tablet
only.


 For the global perspective most people probably do not have a PC while
 they may have a smartphone. You could say they only surf the web..

Of course - somebody cleaning toilets all day long (and this example
is not because I do not appreciate the work of those!) does not need a
high sophisticated operating system and neither does a waitress!
But do you want to build an OS that an IT guy and lawyer likes to use
or do you want to build one that is likes by a waitress? - Both should
be satisfied, but let's be honest: If you need to mail and surf the
web only then it is pretty irrelevant which OS you use!


 In India and other countries Android is the most popular operating
 system including for browsing the web; according to Statcounter; Mobile
 usage has already overtaken desktop [...]

That is no wonder - you should get also statistics about how many
people are working in which branch and: I do a lot of web surfing on
my way to work or to customers while traveling - reading (IT) news for
example. But while programming or writing concept documents
at/for/with customers nearly no web network traffic is produced. And
guess what: Usability and software features are far more relevant to
me in these situations! - So be aware that such statistics are partly
useless if it comes to usage of an operating system. Please do _not_
reduce computer work to email, web surfing and chat!

And I am still convinced that this bug 1 has been closed prematurely.

Best regards, Martin.

I think this bug should be forked into two because regarding PC/Laptops the
bug is IMHO definitely not fixed.

Why there should be a difference? - Well, although most people I know do
have a smartphone (or two - a private one and a business phone) and maybe
also have a tablet, ALL OF THEM do their main computer work with a PC or
laptop. You cannot assume that most of the serious computer work is done
from an Android phone or tablet. And IMHO that won't be the case for the
next years.


   This bug is widely evident in the PC industry.

   Steps to repeat:

   1. Visit a local PC store.
   2. Attempt to buy a machine without any proprietary software.

   What happens:

   Almost always, a majority of PCs for sale have Microsoft Windows pre-
   installed. In the rare cases that they come with a GNU/Linux operating
   system or no operating system at all, the drivers and BIOS may be
   proprietary.

   What should happen:

[Bug 1] Re: Microsoft has a majority market share

2013-09-07 Thread Martyn Vallett
It looks like in the latest ubuntu pre-release, all us users have been
ignored in favour of more spyware and adware, which leaks info to the
british an US governments, through all those useless lens addon that
connect to all those websites. I suspect that this spyware will become a
dependency and later merged into other programs. (I noticed that all
ubuntu specific programs are all dependancies of each other despite not
needing the others to run in most cases.)

I also am one of the many people that have dumped ubuntu in favour of
other distros because of this. I am hoping that canonical removes the
spyware by 14.04, but I doubt they will considering they are a company
and most companies don't give a stuff bout the users.


In a nutshell: Ubuntu gives GNU/Linux a bad name and Canonical is now as bad is 
Apple and Microsoft.

RE: [Bug 1] Re: Microsoft has a majority market share

2013-09-07 Thread Martyn Vallett
I don't remember which it was exactly, it would have probably been
unity. Anyway, the program needed the location tracker, but didn't want
such filth on my system, and I eventually was able to satisify the
dependancy of the program that required the location tracker by
compiling the whole thing into a deb, with its data files blank. And
ubuntu ran with no problem with the modification.

The next oddity is the greeter, I don't see why that would need the
whole desktop enviroment. Does gdm or kdm need their entire
corrosponding emviroment, no. Both of which can run on Lubuntu, and kdm
can even be shipped on a custom remastersys style livecd with no issues.
Therefore there is no valid reason for ubuntu's greeter to require all
of ubuntu. All this is, is locking users into what cononical wants, just
like Apple and Microsoft with their OSes.

As far as I'm concerned, Ubuntu is only riding on it's former glory, as
it is quite likelly that if a distro now came out with as much spyware
as ubuntu, they would be rejected instantly. Canonical has lost my trust
completly, to the point that I don't want to use ubuntu again.

  Microsoft has a majority market share in the new desktop PC
  marketplace. This is a bug which Ubuntu and other projects are meant
  to fix. As the philosophy of the Ubuntu Project states, Our work is
  driven by a belief that software should be free and accessible to
  all.

  Ubuntu software is free. Always was, always will be. Free software gives 
everyone the freedom to use it however they want and share with whoever they 
like. This freedom has huge benefits. At one end of the spectrum it enables the 
Ubuntu community to grow and share its collective experience and expertise to 
continually improve all things Ubuntu. At the other, we are able to give access 
to essential software for those who couldn’t otherwise afford it – an advantage 
that’s keenly felt by individuals and organisations all over the world.
   * http://www.ubuntu.com/project/about-ubuntu/our-philosophy

  Non-free software leaves users at the mercy of the software owner and
  concentrates control over the technology which powers our society into
  the hands of a few. Additionally, proprietary software stifles
  innovation, maintains artificial scarcities, and enables malicious
  anti-features such as DRM, surveillance, and other monopolistic
  practices.

  This bug is widely evident in the PC industry.

  Steps to repeat:

  1. Visit a local PC store.
  2. Attempt to buy a machine without any proprietary software.

  What happens:

  Almost always, a majority of PCs for sale have Microsoft Windows pre-
  installed. In the rare cases that they come with a GNU/Linux operating
  system or no operating system at all, the drivers and BIOS may be
  proprietary.

  What should happen:

  A majority of the PCs for sale should include only free software.
