I run ubuntu on a few machines, but this release is not looking that great in many respects. Cosmetically I think it is one of their weakest releases yet, but more importantly no time has been spend on important things such as the raid subsystem, so lucid will ship with the same old version of mdadm as karmic (~18 months old) and many other problems related to the raid. No problem if you don't use software raid, but if you do, you are currently better of with debian testing or another linux distribution.

I have been running Ubuntu as my main OS since 8.04. I just installed the developer version of 10.04 and have to say there are some nice speed improvements that are noticable. also, some glx errors seem to be better and overall system reaction and operation more stable..

when the stable release is out it is certainly a viable alternative to OSX and Windows7. Both my gf and 75yr old father use it daily and love it. When I was using windows for a week for project they wanted ubuntu back... (my gf runs vista on her laptop btw)

I never cared about bootup speed because I never turn my linux computer off, it almost never needs a reboot. My uptime monitor is reading 4 months right now, and thats only because of a power failure 4 months ago.

How many local-root exploits ago is that? :laughing:

Seriously though, Ubuntu, Debian and all dont update their kernels just for giggles, refuse to reboot when new kernels are installed and you might very well end up with someone else also enjoying your nice hardware ;)
