Apology to Ubuntu forum

Many of you are familiar with my history with Ubuntu and the Ubuntu forums. What follows is an apology for my behavior on the Ubuntu forums.

I apologize for the rude way I treated users on the Ubuntu forums. I should not have told anyone that they "reached a new low" or characterized Ubuntu's adherence to its stated philosophy as "crap", or generally taken the tone that I did with the people who offered help, even if I felt the criticisms I made (of the respose, or of the technical merits of the Ubuntu software and instructions downloadable at the time) were valid. I understand that no one there is obligated to help me, and thus I should be appreciative of whatever help they provide.

This is not to say I have changed any opinion about the system and setup instructions that I criticized, just to say that I should not have made any of these crticisms, or responded to people in the Ubuntu forums, in the manner that I did two years ago.

Well said, UD. That closes the book on it as far as I'm concerned.

Bravo! (1)

Nobody is perfect, and we all can lose our temper and say things we regret later.

I can't count the number of times I've looked back at my behavior and had to apologize.

I hope you go back (even if it's not to Ubuntu) and give Linux another chance on a perhaps non-essential PC. I'm messing around with Xubuntu 7.10 right now on an older book-sized PC and it's fascinating to tinker with.

My summer project is a MythTV system for the living room.
