Fedora 12 vindicates the Karmic Koala - No OS is perfect.

In a previous post, I had openly stated how I disagree with the way and manner in which people are attacking the latest Ubuntu release code named Karmic Koala , to the extent of likening it to the legendary failure of Windows Vista. Well, to those who expect absolute perfection and a buggless OS, check out this bug in the latest release of Fedora 12.

It is a bug that lets anyone get to install software on a machine they do not have the root password to. Do you see my point now? No OS made of codes can be perfect. If you install Ubuntu and have bugs, that does not mean Ubuntu has failed and that it will be like Vista. Rather than spend time badmouthing Ubuntu because of a bug you have discovered, you could help make the correction by reporting it to the developers. 

Ubuntu Karmic Koala is the best Ubuntu release ever. However, that does not make it immune from errors or bugs. You will encounter them, and the best you can do for yourself and the entire Ubuntu ommunity is to report it to the developers and if you know some coding, help correct it. You can even wipe off Ubuntu from your box and grab any of the 1000+ distros out there and hope to get one without bugs and is absolutely perfect.
