Aight so Ubuntu 8.10 cam out!

Any thoughts?

It seems the native non-restricted display drivers in 8.1 don't like to play nice with my 7900 so that required me to do some hoop-jumping to get that working but other than that I'm pretty impressed.

Works perfectly on my laptop, but on my backup desktop it can't use the Radeon 9700 on it properly, and freezes often.

Installed it on my Dad's machine. Looked okay for the 30 seconds I really used it. I didn't get it all finished. The Acronis Security Zone was fighting with Grub for the MBR.
