installed the day it was out. pure awesomeness. my wireless worked out of the box, and flash (in firefox) installs very easily even on a 64-bit os. much better than feisty.

RE: gutsy gibbon
If you have an ATI GPU don't bother downloading it (just for compiz at least).
Just returned at Vista. I was on Ubuntu trying to install the drivers for my ATI X1950 Pro GPU, but it is a pain in the butt. I managed to somehow install some kind of an ATI driver but it could only make the resolution go higher than 1024x768. Compiz fusion wouldn't work and it looked like there was no 3D acceleration (some of the screensavers where lagging).
I could be doing something wrong though...

If you have an nVidia GPU though go get it. Installing the nVidia drivers was very easy: There is a program called "Envy" that automatically installs the drivers for you (it also does this for the ATI drivers, but I couldn't get it to work with CF).
CF was running smoothly on my 7600GT.


Also, since I'm a linux n00b, can anyone tell me what's the difference between Gutsy Gibbon and Feisty Fawn?

its a bit outdated as its the 7.10 beta release page, but there's nothing new about it. linkage.

i love how ubuntu release a new, and even better version every 6 months, and you have to wait 3/4 years for M$ to make a new one :P

fvwm > compiz!

Got to say that annotate feature looks handy, though.
was put impeccably into words at DebianDay for me last Saturday, by Knut Yrvin of Trolltech - adults try something once, fail, and then are like "ffs this doesn't work". Children try, fail, and then try again, and succeed - maybe on the second, or even fifth retry. But the thing is that they keep at it and overcome the problems in the end.

Upgraded from Feisty with no problems at all.

I don't like compiz... or beryl. Actually I don't like Gnome/KDE/XFCE at all any more... for some reason, when I'm on Linux, I just prefer using the command line.

My difficulty there is getting decent command-line pdf viewers :)

thats the thing that i think scares off a lot of people that would like to move/use linux, the fact that many [but not most/all] aspects of linux uses command line input, and people want the easier to use GUI instead. but i have to say, i think comand line is so much more powerful, and easier to use when you get your head around it. =p

For some reason I dislike Linux's command line but I like Windows' command line... :s
I think it's for the reason you posted above...
I usually find myself having a terminal open when I'm using Linux... :-/
