The BEEP! That's what this thread is about.

Ubuntu seems to be the leading distro, not because it's perfect, but that it isn't as bad as the others, and there's software available. More are able to install it on their computers, within a timeframe not measured in days.
i don't want to get rid of you. I want to help you find a distro that will keep you happy, and a Linux user.
I believe I've tried every distro, half of which failed to load the install program, or complete that once it started. Therefore, sorry, but you won't so easily be getting rid of me after all the time invested in the distro which isn't all that bad.
If my Ubuntu installs were making the annoying BEEPS that you have reported, I would have installed Fedora over them! I started using the Ubuntu version Mythbuntu, that is what first lead me to Ubuntu. Otherwise it was Fedora or Suse for me.
So we put up with the errors, or we make like monks and spend all our time filing bug reports, until it becomes clear that there will always be more annoyances popping up, some which are critical to operations, and faster than they get fixed! That, and the geeks don't care about half of the gui bugs, 'cause they think the whole world should have time to go pick up the command manual and get their eyes transplanted just to accomplish some of the simple tasks which they are used to doing without that hassle. NEWS FOR GEEKS - the command line is NOT more elegant for the job of formatting CD/DVD media when you are currently navigating through the gui!
The terminal actually is better for some things. You will come to learn that, in time. And, the tasks can be performed without a desktop even being installed. If you work on servers, you may find that they don't have a Xserver installed.
Do you mean that they drop support for the oldest version when a newer version is released? Even Ubuntu does that. Fedora is currently supporting versions 10 and 11.
Anyway, what about all the posts from people who leave Fedora for Ubuntu, and the shutdown of Fedora support which was being discussed everywhere in April?
