I thought my next post would be about chat clients, but then I noticed my fan was running loud, and a glance at the processes showed Rhythmbox was running at 200% streaming some internet radio.
A Google search showed other users complaining about CPU load reading music from their hard drive, so I’m going to have to move this app into the “does not work out of the box” group as well.
So, I’m four hours in and have four apps that don’t work. (Pidgin, BitchX, Spark, and Rhythmbox).
Maybe I’ll try some productivity apps just to see if I am wasting my time trying to get Ubuntu to work as a desktop replacement.
