    I haven't upgraded yet but I plan on doing so next week.

    Have you upgraded to 10.04 or installed it yet? If so, what do you think about it?

    Peace...

    I like it. Not too many changes since 9.10. I like the Social Networking capability of it, and I think it handles pics and vids a little bit better too.

    Hi,
    I'm running the Netbook Edition of Ubuntu 10.04. Very impressed - plymouth works now (log on screen etc). From selecting Ubuntu at boot 'til on line (wireless) approx 45 seconds max including typing username & p/w. Boot time matters on laptop but less on desktop I guess.
    Operationally moves fast - no figures but compared to Vista I can see a real difference.

    Switching from Netbook to Gnome at logon works well in both directions.
    Wireless connection simple to set up. Mobile broadband worked 'out of the box' on first time use.

    Hope others also enjoying the newest Ubuntu?

    Richard

    Always run at least two copies of Ubuntu in the box. I am keeping the 9.04 as it is fast and robust. It was the last one that uses Grub1 as newer versions have faulted to Grub2.
