oh sure, back in the day ubuntu was the best gnome distro and everyone loved it. now, they have serious issues. you can't make the excuse that at least it's not complete crap. if you went to someone's home and they offered you soggy old bread, would you say- hey, at least it's not scooped from the trashcan? I want Linux to be as good as the competition- for that they would have to fix up x/wayland and then pulseaudio.
bitching like me helps Linux more by bringing problems into attention. By constantly ignoring the problems and showering them with praise does not make the issues go away.
if you want to know I did submit a bug report and helped to fix a bug in nouveau. so i'm not just a passive complainer.
