is Linux these days trying to be Windows? i just had to search high and low to disable two annoyances i thought were part of Windows. Ubuntu has this Dr.Watson type utility known as 'apport' that locked my machine solid as a rock because it 'thought' a program crashed (it didn't but since it was acting slow it 'thought' it was and tried closing it). the second is a Windows Update type tool that not only arbritarily pops up at the worst possible moment to try and update things without my permission and once even restarted my machine on its own

taking lessons from Microsoft, Ubuntu?! listen i tell my computer what i want it to do. i will not tolerate it doing things on its own! the last thing i want is to be in the middle of a movie and BAM! my machine restarts.
