[ubuntu] Really dissappointed

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – My 12.04 software updates are more and more difficult to perform. I've used ubuntu from the beginning and red hat before that starting in 96. I have enjoyed years of ubuntu usage with great gratitude. But more and more lately it is getting bloaty. Software updates should be a piece of cake and they never are. It doesn't matter if I'm using the update manager, synaptic or cli. It really should be as simple as apt-get update and apt-get upgrade. You're loosing me. Good luck. I hope you find your path again.
