    Ubuntu 7.10 out today

    I'm downloading it now from the Dutch mirror. Nice features such as Compiz mean I will seriously consider this to replace XP on my workstation.

    Surprising amount of improvements over 6 months ago. Dolphin the file manager is loads better, wireless now sorted for a lot of cards including my broadcom (yay! ), lots of new apps. Just seems a lot easier to setup and use, especially for novices. I use Kubuntu BTW - prefer K.

    I've never used Kubuntu, any major differences?

    And the best bit about it is, you don't have to wait outside PC World to be mugged for a £100 for your new copy.

    Bad bit, I don't even feel like a pirate when burning a CD, so I feel a fake saying Arrrrrrr.

    At risk of starting religious war but, IMO KDE is better for power users whilst gnome is designed to be easy to use - of course both are fully customisable.

    Surely power users use Ion

    or

    hehe - I'm sure they both have their own advantages, that's what I was looking for. Not a war!

    Re: Ubuntu 7.10 out today

    I'm excited for the release of Fluxbuntu!

    Hmmm. Dare I do an upgrade on my home machine from work or will X screw up like it did with one of the 6.?? releases? :P

    Re: Ubuntu 7.10 out today

    I'm actually trialing Mandriva 2008 Powerpack at the moment. Seeing how things are going over there... Didn't cost that much either (I like to feed a bit of money back into these linux companies if I can).

    I will try Ubuntu 7.10 somepoint next week... give the servers some time to recover :P
