Even though most of the review does look like random bashing, there
are some points which I can take as valid. Listing (in order of
* notification panel (was systray) was really annoying during install,
when instead of clicking next, the panel would pop up and cover the
'Next' button
* bad integration a.k.a. ugly icons - annoying, and just plain ... ugly
* online accounts - never got it to work properly for me, in fact I
stopped caring to report any bugs

Although one may argue the form and the phrasing the criticism was
delivered, but it doesn't make it any less valid. However, at times
the community seems to be content with the status quo and instead of
fixing the obvious problems, it's just easier to name people 'trolls'
