In Ubuntu, there is an infamous issue with the Gnome clipboard manager. (Actually, it’s not even decent enough to be called a “clipboard manager.”) Many people face extremely annoying problems of losing data when copying and pasting, especially when the copied source is closed. Ironically, this problem has not been fixed in the recently released 8.04 Hardy Heron.
Many of you know that I’ve been running and testing Ubuntu 7.10 “Gutsy” since early in the alpha stage. There have been no show stoppers and its been fun to see the development continue to happen, and be able to contribute to that by submitting bugs.
