I have use debian for about two years, and hear about ubuntu for a long time. It seems that many people like it than debian, I'd like to have a preview of it. Thank for the link, I'll try it.
I'll probably try it, but I'm guessing already that it won't even boot on my PC, just like the last two versions.
I've used the beta for one day, and then I got rid of it. Nothing but trouble to get things running, especially compiz and beryl. My nvidia driver kept doing weird things, and I got thrown out of x.org occasionally.
Furthermore it was really slow on my PC. Loading firefox took 12 seconds, to give an example.
Now I spent a few days trying out gentoo, and I actually like it. Firefox loads on 3-4 seconds. Go figure.
What's new in 7.04 anyway? The built-in compiz that didn't work?
Gnome 2.18 you say? Then I'll as you: What's new in gnome 2.18?
No... Canonical screwed up after 6.06 (Dapper Drake).
But I'm sure it will work on some PCs...
Remember that Ubuntu is built on top of Debian and the apt package management system.
I've been using Feisty Fawn for awhile now and it is really awesome. It uses the xfce windowing system, making it light weight and fast, but also beautiful and user-friendly.
If you haven't used Ubuntu, try it! Especially you redice - if you are familiar with Debian, you will feel right at home with Ubuntu.
I still use Debian for my servers, but I now use Ubuntu for workstations. My office uses mostly Macs as workstations (for Adobe) as well as Window (for IE testing).
How about you?
If I was still using Ubuntu, I'd probably get it. I've always been trying the new stuff out. I may yet, but since I re-tried PCLinuxOS, I've had a hard time wanting to go with anything else really (except maybe back to Gentoo). PCLinuxOS seems to "just work" with anything that I've tried so far. And, its the only one that got "X" right as far as my Radeon 9500 Pro. Others would lock up as soon as I tried a 3D application.
