And you thought Eggplant was bad…

Ugh. I tried not to bash Ubuntu. Really, I did. I love it. It’s still the main OS on my machines, I am going to update to 10.10 as soon as blah, blah, blah.

@popey Golly. I return from holiday to discover the new #ubuntu desktop background in 10.10 has the vomit motif dialled up a notch or two

I couldn’t agree more.
