Pulseaudio is one of the best things happened to desktop linux, as is randr.
I was hoping that this thread would bring some ideas why or why not one dislikes Ubuntu which in turn would help Linux in general.
Instead it became mostly a Pulse audio thread.

Why should you have to "RTFM and configure" your audio if you're not doing anything special? Just say no.
I think the major thing I dislike about Ubuntu is how they control so many other projects' release cycles. I don't use it personally, but they now have KDE releases and driver releases in their thrall, and now other distros are following the same pattern.
Otherwise, I dislike how Ubuntu goes to great lengths to hide any degree of complexity from all users (at least, that's how it feels from my standpoint). It makes support of new users by advanced users damn near impossible at times. The "advanced" answer should never be "try reinstalling the app" or "use a PPA". That is broken and wrong.
Oh, and Kubuntu is a disgrace. I'm very glad Mint seems to package it better, and I sincerely hope they make good on their threat to work from Debian as a base for Mint KDE.
