As I promised, in this post, I have a review of Ubuntu 14.04. Well, two reviews: desktop and tablet.
As the desktop, Ubuntu 14.04 rocks! There are many features that I wanted that are finally built-in. One of them is the battery indicator showing the other battery devices that you have connected such as a wireless keyboard. I remember asking that a Long-Term Release ago in Ubuntu Brainstorm when it was still around. Another awesome feature is the volume limit can be set where you can go past 100% without going to sound settings to just adjust the volume. I love this because it find it a bit hard to hear what people say in some of the Hangouts and other videos and now I don’t need to do the extra step of going to adjust the volume. Now, I can allow Ubuntu do it for me with a check in a box. These are the only two features that I love about Ubuntu 14.04 along with the live resizing of windows.
As for the tablet, I hate it. I have a Nexus 7 2013 and I waited for them to get an official image for it. But now, I think I would rather stick to Android. First off, I know that Ubuntu for ptablets is just a developers/testers preview and feedback is key, but I would rather wait a bit or another release to try it out my Nexus 7 2013. They are many features that are missing and they are basic. Here is the list:
- No way to uninstall apps
- No way to have a warning that you are powering down
- It crashes
- No inductor for volume when you adjust it
There are more about these are the ones that I can remember before I reinstalled what I have before Ubuntu.
