It took me all but an hour to install and configure Ubuntu 8.10 and it runs faster and better than 8.04 ever did. Sure there are still a few little querks to work out, but that won't take long (google is my best friend) and most Hardy stuff works on Intrepid :D

This is my first try with Linux and I like it. Especially since my aging printer no longer works correctly in XP, it now works great in 8.10.

 I liked how easy it was to install, and it made room without loosing data on my hard drive.Fir me it is a keeper.  And with crossover installed my old win apps are ready to use until I get better at using OpenOffice.

As much as I've tried, i just can't warm up to GNOME. Happily, there is Kubuntu... https://wiki.kubuntu.org/IntrepidIbex/RC/Kubuntu

Im using the 8.10 beta right now and i have to say that it looks better... the biggest thing i think for me though is that they have (of course) added new native GPU support (my GTX 260 is finally supported after a fresh install)

Not much to expect in the new version then...

Does anyone know if Ubuntu 8.10 natively support Creative Xfi Xtreme Gamer sound cards yet?

If you just go over to howtoforge.com, it gives you a walk through on installing OpenOffice 3.0

Hi All,

The latest .deb distros seem to lack what I get with openSuSE 11.0 - that is OpenOffice 3.0

I think that the latest Ubuntu is a looser here.

"loser" not "looser".

And you can easily download the latest version of OpenOffice.

Hey a fellow Phoenician.... Excellent website.

Appreciate your learned comment, but I can't take anyone seriously who doesn't know the difference between loser and looser.
