Hooray for Hardy
I installed the official 8.04 Hardy Heron Mythbuntu and it's great. I notice a big improvement over Gutsy, which was brilliant too. I had no driver issues for wireless network, sound or video. It even recongized my 32 inch LCD as a Toshiba, via the DVI port. It's running on an Asus Pundit P1-AH2 -- the small book sized one.
It took about 5 minutes to download the torrent, 1 minute to burn disk image and 15 - 20 minutes to install on a brand new hard drive..
More specifically, Hardy streams high quality video via wireless G from my NAS, without a hiccup. Granted the files are XVID avi. The look of the GUI is very polished too.
When I reflect on how much easier it was to get up and running compared to Feisty, less than one year ago, it makes me wonder how much longer Vista can withstand the competition.
