is out in the wild
On boot now there are a few errors most likely relating to nVidia drivers on my Quadro card, and it still seems to have slight issues with multiscreen displays. The errors on boot don't seem to affect anything once I am up an running.
Once I fixed my PATHs and permissions after upgrade I seem to be running again.
Taking a step back from my personal experience, I honestly don't think Linux is still ready for the mass consumer market. It takes great google skills or knowledge to fix anything that goes wrong. As powerful as the terminal is, 95% of users will never touch one ever, and be okay. If Linux wasn't such a good development environment, my work machine would easily be OSX or Windows.
