Very pleased with this release, seems a lot more polished than 8.04. Been playing with the RC today with latest updates and it seems very nice indeed.
Took a bit of a kick to make VMWare Server work but liking the idea of partner repos to fix the ever irritating java in firefox on x64 issues.
Definitely worth a go, even shoved xubuntu onto my eee to make it do something useful.

Is LXDE on there yet? A friend said it's 'better' than xfce
even shoved xubuntu onto my eee to make it do something useful.

Seems good so far although it seems to have eaten my AWN dock which aint showing no more but i installed it using ultamatix so i guess i am paying the price.

I got VPN to work after much fiddling over PPTP. I had to select only MSCHAP, turn on encryption (automatic), pick stateful encryption, edit gconf to prevent EAP, not save my password, not fill in the domain but instead use domain\username.

My update didn't work properly. I ended up uninstalling the NVidia driver then Gnome sprang into life on the reboot phew!

Just this minute finished.
First thoughts? The wifi light now works on my Latitude D520! No distro has ever managed this (yeah yeah small things and simple people)
Wow just noticed it flashes with activity! Never did that in windows...!

Had a slight problem with Flash not being upgraded to the Intrepid package but fixed manually easy enough.

Installing the Server version as I type this!

Still seems to have the major bug that if you run it as a standard peer to peer machine (not adding it to the domain) you can't see windows shares, so unless you know the share name you can't access them. Think i will stay with Gutsy Gibbon for a while longer.
