This laptop originally came with Window XP, but apparently something happened to the motherboard and it had to be replaced. I want to know who the fuck gets off on putting a Ubuntu motherboard in when it would be just as easy to put a superior WinXP one in. I don't know much about computer hardware, but this just seems like a dick move.
I want fucking yellow text on black backgrounds, damn it. My PC lets me do that, and my PC also runs an array of useful file types. But try to run anything on this Ubuntu piece of shit and it tells you it's not compatible. You have to use it's specialized Ubuntu versions of the programs, and if there isn't a Ubuntu version you can try your luck with Wine, waste a few hours, and find out fuck all works anyway.
Is there any saving grace to this operating system, apart from possibly being cheaper? I don't know what I'm going to do with this thing, but I feel dirty just thinking about taking notes in university on it. Maybe I'll try to trade it to some dumbass who thinks he has to be different in every way.

PS: Yes, I have almost no experience on Linux based OPs, apart from possibly my iPod, and the last disaster of a laptop I returned within a week of finding out I hate Linux. Maybe if I were some crazy hacker I would find Linux remotely useful.
