"The solution could be better integrated with Microsoft.""They aren't as user-friendly as Microsoft. The solution can use a better UI.""If I run an application, I need it to show up in Microsoft, so Microsoft can run in Ubuntu. It needs to connect better with Microsoft products.""I am really very satisfied with this solution. However, one thing that I would like to see improve, is to have better support for multiple screens with multiple resolutions. For me, that is the most important feature.""On the gaming side, things are happening but there are some games that should be ported to Ubuntu.""Ubuntu should create some specific features, like Red Hat. Red Hat has provided many features for open-source, like FreeIPA.""There are some drivers that are not there encoded, however, I thought that was pretty normal. They could be more comprehensive.""In terms of what could be improved, I would say management and storage. Mostly, the storage mechanism."
