"switch the distro" won't work. All are going this way.

So your, and the others, options, are the same as when this started. Change
it back yourself or live with it the way that it is now. A sub-option, if
you want to call it an option, is to keep complaining. But you will still
have to deal with one of the others.

I am sorry that you are unhappy but I am finished with this thread.
