I've been using Linux since Slackware 3.6 came out and as my main (and only) OS since 2004. I was using Debian for a long time, but some friends told me that Ubuntu was really matured and convinced me to change. My main reason to install Ubuntu was that I wanted something that "just works", so I could concentrate on important stuff.
But since I installed Ubuntu, I've been running around trying to fix problems. My experience with it is quite different than probably most of you have had. The lastest issues I face are random syste freeze, some malfunctioning (specially with Flash) and Xorg crashing and getting me back to lightdm login screen.
I think most of the issues can be atributed to NVidia and Adobe, but still... I just want the thing to work!
The specs of my computer are as follow: Intel® Core™ i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07GHz. 24GB of DDR3 RAM. Nvidia Geforce GTS 250 1GB - Running (now) the Nvidia Driver version 302.17 (last attempt to fix the logoff issue).
I use mainly Chrome for web browsing, LibreOffice and Eclipse to work and I find myself losing stuff because of freezes and logoffs all the time. That besides the Flash plugin crashes with Chrome and Firefox.
I can't use Unity other than Unity 2D because it'd loggoff all the time, so now I use gnome-shell, which I like, but it still gets me logged off and freezes from time to time, just as in Unity just not as frequent.
What should I do to get a better experience? I am so used to Linux that I can't just move to Windows or MacOS anymore, so I need it to work!
