    I feel time has come to "upgrade" my Raspberry Pi "standard" operating system.
    I'll will not recite my reasons why here.

    I like to have something similar to Ubuntu "style" desktop.
    Must be "BCM2835" friendly. I am using RPi as an embedded controller (duh) for amateur radio applications and easy access to BCM processor (options) is a must.

    So what is your favorite OS on RPi and why ?

    Because > Raspbian comes pre-installed with plenty of software for education, programming and general use. It has Python, Scratch, Sonic Pi, Java, Mathematica and more.

    Tried Ubuntu MATE but run into "configuration" asking for "store e-mail" and could not get pass it. Little unethical IMHO.
    I wonder if these folks know about extortion.

    Went back to Raspberry Desktop - not wasting my time commenting on that OS.

    I've never had the issue you're describing with Ubuntu MATE, are you certain you downloaded it from the official repository?

    Nope. I loaded from two places and had same issue.
    Now I got it stored and just need to find spare SD to load it.

    The ones on ignore are likely to be the very ones who can help.

    My guess is that he is just trolling like normal.
