Ubuntu 10.10 usability epic fail

By | October 17, 2010

Well, first of all, I am not a fan of Windows nor Linux and Mac. I use Windows and Linux at work and at home, so hopefully my comment is not biased.

Today, I upgraded my Ubuntu distro from 10.04 to 10.10 at home, and decided to setup the chat accounts from the top right menu. Setting up the chat and social accounts are pretty straight-forward. The idea is great, manage all the accounts in a single menu, from that menu you can set the status (“Online, “Away”, “Offline” etc) by one click. So I clicked on “Offline”, Okay, it worked… but how do I re-able to online status? The menu just grayed out, and nothing you can click on. WTF!! Come on, Ubuntu… or even Linux, could you please release a single distro this is truly user friendly and stop making its users wished they were using Windows?
