    Innovative features. I can't even find a change log for the latest release.

    Looks like a load of fluff about social networking, music shops and cloud storage areas to me, hardly massive steps for an operating system.

    If new versions of Windows were released every six months would you expect to see major new features introduced with each and every version?

    I've just come back to Ubuntu after a while away, lots of improvements since I last tried it out (Hardy I think was the LTS release last time I checked in)

    Still got irritating problems with ATI support though (though that's not specific to Ubuntu I know, might have to bite the bullet and get a cheap nVidia card)

    I run two screens on an ATI HD4870 (1920x1080 & 1280x1024) with no problem, what's up?
