After reading the Dodoimedo article at the URL, http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/ubuntu-ten-things.html, all I am able to say is,
What a load of crap!
No wonder n00bs don't bother learning the command line and are happy, compliant, MS-Trained Brain automatons! They think they can just install and go, like most women in a car.

"There's nothing you need TO DO after installing a new Linux distribution. Ubuntu, as well as many of its counterparts, offer a complete common experience, with a very decent set of programs, tools, drivers, and aesthetics. In recent Ubuntu versions, you get to install codecs and updates while installing, so there's even less fuss. A handful of useful applications has been removed from the default installation, like GIMP, but then, it's not meant for everyone out there. Regressions must never happen, but then again, this applies to every distro out there."

This is what I mean.
apt-get remove --purge brasero
for just one!

Didn't the OP and Dedoimedo make clear that it was humourous? I read the article a few days ago, admittedly it didn't leave me needing ribs replacing, but it was supposed to be a joke. No need to get all defensive.
It's nice to be important, it's much more important to be nice.

Satire is a lost art. Apparently, the author could have used some tips from the likes of Jonathan Swift, Ring Lardner and others.

I had just finished reading this and found it disturbing -- so I probably overreacted -- c'est la vie!

I assume it was Dedoimedos' take on this, I didn't really see the need, most of the articles on that site are comedy in their own right.
