Used and enjoyed Ubuntu since 2004 or 2005. Disliked Windows since 2002 or 2003.

First experience with Linux in 2003. Saw someone else using Knoppix and was utterly enthralled. Later was sent a Dynabolic disk by a friend and was extremely excited by that. Have tried out many, many other flavors of Linux since then but mostly stuck to Ubuntu where I had a choice.

However, the latest is that I view the shopping lens of Unity as a symptom that Ubuntu is heading in the wrong direction. I have begun to look into other distros again.

The birthdate I entered is farcical, as I prefer not to identify in any way publicly online, but the age is in the ballpark.

comment How do I eliminate the extra title bar?
Excellent! No one seems to be mentioning state=maxhorz, but that is important, especially if you want to use the Window Grid plugin. I tried maxhori and maxhoriz and neither worked; should have figured this out. Took some searching. +1 upvote this answer people.

comment Will it be possible to autohide indicators in some way in the future?
As long as we don't get a Windows "they autohide, and when you tell them not to, they autohide"...

comment Libreoffice Base reports not working after upgrade to Ubuntu 12.04
I tried what I could from there and it didn't seem to fix it, even though some of the things he said (missing "Sort" field etc) were true.

@ObsessiveFOSS Yes sir, I understand. I'm just saying that I hadn't got around to doing it because you can't accept your own answers at first, and then I hadn't remembered (I don't check this site as regularly as some of the others).
