    Loving the new version.....

    10.04 - at last a version I can really work with - got it running on a Dell D610 really nicely.

    Put the netbook remix on my girlfriends EEPC 701 the other day.

    Really impressed, and she loves it too.

    Just gotta upgrade my mothers ubuntu box and we're all go ;-)

    I wish I could make the move over to Ubuntu, I really do. I just love Win7 too much to attempt it!

    Ok, what three things would you really really miss in Win7?

    @powdarrmonkey For me, it's the responsiveness of the GUI (particularly Gnome) which keeps me with Windows - it's just quicker.

    1) Wouldn't be able to program in VB.net with a *nix distro
    2) Wouldn't be able to manage our RM CC3 network (without having to constantly remote into the server everytime I wanted to make a change)
    3) Wouldn't be able to design Flash apps (AFAIK) with *nix

    1) Same issue here, as we have a load of custom c# apps running on Windows. I'd love to move to Ubuntu but just can't do it.
    2) You know what the answer to that is
    3) IIRC there are some open source projects for creating flash apps. However, why are you wanting to use flash still, when HTML5 + Ajax can do pretty much everything flash can do now?

    Can't this be done using GTK# and VB.NET in Mono? At least I know you can with C# anyway

    I agree with Localzuk there, I personally think Javascript is a better alternative but it's what your comfortable with or prefer I guess.

    Agreed with the HTML5/JS comments i loathe flash it does nothing but annoy me on a day to day basis, be it that {insert cr**y software} doesnt work with the new version or that something has come along that requires a version higher than the MSI version I currently have deploying. Id also like to have a day where at some point chrome doesnt pop up and say "Flash player has chrashed"

    Im loving 10.04 visually its nicer than 9.10 but rather annoyingly the machine i use every day and i do all my personal coding and web development on decided that after updating from 9.10 gwibber wouldnt work. so ive now got the "me menu" that does naff all cause i cant setup my twitter and facebook accounts in it

    It manages to boot very quickly on my netbook and gets me into chrome in under a minute whch is nice.

    The problem is, the MS implementation of VB.Net and c# is a lot more complete than any of the open source versions. Unless you have a completely *nix network, it seems odd to use a different OS to the one you're supporting.

    Is there a graphical display to design these things for HTML5/Ajax? TBH, it's something I haven't had time to look into yet, but probably should!

    Not that I know of, but then the main part of using flash isn't graphical either - it is actionscript.

    You can kind of, but any exisiting projects you have made would take a lot of work (depending on their complexity) to port to Mono, and if they rely on any ActiveX controls you can forget it!

    I am liking it, am using it on a couple of test servers i have here and seems to be running fine (but then so does most ubuntu server installs apart from 9.04 where you can get a grub2 error!)

    I am also using it on one of my desktops at work plus also my laptop.

    The main part my sister liked about it was the fact it was a purple theme!!
