Things slowed down a bit since my first post.
Since then, Ubuntu 8.04 was released and it is truly an enjoyable upgrade. Well, so long as you have some relatively stock (see: cheap/low performance/OEM-built) equipment.
My Acer laptop took 8.04 like a duck to water. My old Gateway P3/800 hums happily away...
My powerhouse dual-core, X-fi gamer, megajigawatt video machine still suffers from an assortment of bugs and problems. To be fair, recent updates have improved things.
I hope to have more posts in the near future. I also endeavor to join a local user group in the near future to help me broaden my Linux horizons a bit more.
