On the gaming side, things are happening but there are some games that should be ported to Ubuntu. Gamers generally don't adopt Linux, and the choice is normally Windows.

I would love to see more, open documentation and a bigger ecosystem. I think Ubuntu's main strength, as opposed to using the other Linuxes, has been its ability to encourage user feedback. I think that's something that can always be improved. So it's just about keeping that open and increasing the certainty in IT because IT needs to know what we're going to stick with. When you decide to make an architectural change, it may be better to get community feedback first, and maybe then announce it in a different way. I don't think it's very technical and the community feedback route should be looked at or be improved. They might also add additional features, like something to tweak the home desktop a little bit for new users.

I prefer to use Debian instead of Ubuntu because Debian is the main distributor. Debian is more stable than Ubuntu. In some projects, I have had some problems with Ubuntu Linux. I finally figured out the root cause. It goes back to repositories. On Ubuntu, you can use main repositories and the source of a package that you install from. If you change repositories, you will get trouble and have difficulties with Ubuntu. Ubuntu should create some specific features, like Red Hat. Red Hat has provided many features for open-source, like FreeIPA. I can centralize the management and policy management. It's very good, like Microsoft. That has an active directory, a special directory service for the customers. I'm looking for enterprise features. I'm looking for specific features in the storage area, in the file system area. I'm looking for management solutions, integration solutions, like SUSE and Red Hat.

The portal for the active directory needs to be improved. I cannot include my work station as I want to the active directory to the Microsoft domain. The solution could be better integrated with Microsoft.

I'd like their updates to be better and some other official programs, as well as the user interface. 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.

An easier to configure firewall would be a good add-on. I would like some antiviruses, since what you get on the market is not much. However, if you want to protect your network, there should be an easier way to configure security software since sometimes it can be very difficult.
