I'm using the netbook version. I like the unity interface which is very like Gnome Shell and gives plenty of real estate on a small screen. Everything just worked as I have come to expect from Ubuntu, but as I am mainly using my desktop, it hasn't had much of a workout yet.
I may upgrade my laptop to 10.10 but I think my desktop is staying on 10.04 for now.
It's funny but after all the distros I have tried and apart from my play machines (Slackware and FreeBSD) I have apparently decided that I am after all an Ubuntard. At least for the moment

Downloaded the 64-bit CD last night, but didn't have time to burn it before bed. Let the laptop stay on overnight doing an in-place upgrade to see if it would work. I'll take a look when I get home today.

Not sure if you guys were aware of this

It was launched at the same time as 10.10. Figured it fits the thread. I'm sticking with 10.04 on my Desktop for now. I think I am just one of the few who did not have trouble upgradeing from 8.04 to 10.04 and I aint gonna push it. Too early yet.

Well, I'm on the upgraded 10.10 (from 10.04) laptop now. The new default font is kind of nice. I can't say the same about any of the default themes. The closest one to my liking is Ambiance, but I had to change that ridiculous bright orange border to a more neutral gray.
Other than that so far not a lot is different. Of course, that could also just be because it's an in-place upgrade rather than a clean install. I might back up and try that tomorrow.

I upgraded my laptop without issues. 10.10 seems faster, and certainly looks better.

I did an in-place upgrade on Sunday night and all was good. Last night I decided to try a clean install. Perhaps it's just my setup, but the installer didn't show the option to simply "use existing free space" that I'm used to.
I'm okay with creating my own partitions but it seems a little much for new users. Did anyone else notice this, or was it something peculiar to my machine?

It has the option to "Install alongside" an existing OS which I think is a renamed version of the same thing.
