I don’t think this is quite accurate–or perhaps it’s accurate but not the best way to think about it.
You might have “encountered” issues mostly from people installing third party apps. But gearheads like that are exactly the people who you’d expect to be most active/vocal on a forum like this.
In other threads, I’ve reported my (bad) experiences with the update, and strongly urged WD to respect the fact that, in this day and age, many people are vitally dependent on their data. I’ve done this in a manner that–while it may have been loud–was as courteous as possible.
There are many, many people out there like me (and Tamanaco) who really don’t want to have anytihing to do with the command line, with SSH, with 3rd party apps, or any of that nonsense. We just want our network drives, our “personal cloud storage,” to work. The way it’s supposed to.
Again, the gearhead DIY tinkerers are going to be the loudest. There are many more people like me who might not even be aware that this forum is here. They’re just sitting there scratching their heads and wondering what the heck happened to the data they need.
Thanks for listening, for suggesting remedies, and for escalating the issues of some of us. But to suggest that the problem is limited mainly to Linux jockeys adding all sorts of 3rd party bells and whistles to their drives is not quite accurate.
