    I'm really impressed so far.

    I don't follow U that closely, do they have donations in Software Center yet?

    I think I'll give the Kubuntu-LiveCD a try. It looks like i'll have to deal with Ubuntu at work, so I might be a good idea to brush up my debian-skills a bit again. :>

    Amazing! This is the first time everything went smooth during upgrade. Not only does everything still work, they even made it amazingly responsive (nautilus, scrolling,...) and it boots even faster now! The new font is spectacular too - so easy on the eyes and so clear.

    This is the best release ever.

    I installed it on a new harddrive and I was surprised how nice it is...the idea of configuring the system while installing it is cool. Boot: From POST BIOS to full logged in session: 5 seconds (not counting the time for typing the password), with 10.04 ~15 seconds.

    oh and the best thing: Heroes of Newerth works with AMD HD5870 graphiccard for me while using the fglrx driver delivered with ubuntu 10.10

    I'd hesitate that it's the best one ever- it still has a few sharp edges that lurk in the wings from having started with a beta back in September and using it as, even though it was ill-advised, a production desktop system for my current Day Job. It works smoother in many ways to the previous versions- but there's still things...off...with the thing.

    For example, OpenJDK is your only choice for Java right at the moment- and things aren't apparently as stable with it on 10.10 versus 10.4; Eclipse and Netbeans seem to be much less stable than they were in 10.4 (Crashes abound, especially with Netbeans trying to do C/C++ development. Had to quit trying that since it'd die more often than stay up there. So long as I stick to the Java stuff (Day job has me doing C/C++ and Java stuff depending on which part of the system I'm working on...) it is MOSTLY stable- it only occasionally crashes on startup and then is robust past that.

    The only trouble I have is the inability to install fglrx. For me it won't even show up in hardware drivers (jokey). Installing it through synaptic results in a broken system.

    How's that for a coincidence?
