Seems less like optimization and more like populating your system with programs, but it's still good.

I'd agree - I didn't really see any optimisation, but I did see a lot of adding programs.

Optimize the experience, rather than the performance.

It's just a shorter way of saying "how to make the best of it".

Would normally think of it as being called "Enhance a Fresh Ubuntu Installation" in that case, but I'm thinking that I'm getting too caught up in semantics.

No I would agree with you there Redroar, Optimise = faster/more efficient in my books, adding software is enhancing features.

I love how this thread just turned into an analysis of the name of the linked article.

Like optimize, discipline can be left up to interpretation, as I prefer not to practice self-discipline, but do enjoy being disciplined by.. I'll stop there..

As long as its not taken too far, all aspects of discipline that I can think of I don't mind, and in some cases, may even enjoy.

Has it gone South as in location? Or in the implied term of deteriorating in value or worth?
