    I know the next Ubuntu release is still a month off, but has anyone played with the current beta? Anything interesting jump out at you? My first impressions weren't all that impressive.

    Been reading reviews through LXer about 10.10 and 10.10 Netbook.

    Supposedly new Ubuquity and Gnome 3 is included along with revamped Software Center. Touchscreen for Netbooks in the mix also. Wait and see I guess.

    I'm waiting to see what they have done with unity. It may even mean that UNR makes it to my netbook!

    Am I the only person who thinks that Ubuntu is doing a very bad job with Gnome by trying to make it look like OS X?

    And seriously, what is with the window buttons being moved to the left side?

    If i ever find myself on that distro, i'll download the KDE version instead.

    Like anything, it depends on your hardware, specifically video card. ATI are having a hard time right now. I had issues with my nvidia but the current version 256.53 solved all my issues. They have updated xorg to 1.9. Suppose to make startup faster.

    I was also having problems with Lucid until I upgrade nvidia to 256.53.

    I don't generally mess with my main system until at the very earliest the Release Candidate, which generally comes out about a week ahead of the final version.
