    it's fucking awesome!
    the best desktop distro ever

    No, seriousily
    You get the quality of debian, the release cycle of fedora, the power of apt
    Then it 'just works'. Found my networking, sound, lcd all right on the first go, it was great. Then it looks *stunning*. Top job by the caconical people, can't wait 'till the next version :P

    Re: ubuntu

    Everyone that knows me knows I'm not only a Unix nut, but a Linux LIVE CD distro nut. I was perusing Slashdot and saw a posting about Ubuntu releasing a LiveCD. Being the nut that I am, I downloaded the ISO and burned it to disk.

    This is the first LiveCD I've tried on my newest laptop that didn't hang without passing boot parameters. This is also the first LiveCD that hasn't required boot parameters to get sound working "out of the box." HOWEVER... I can't seem to find any mp3 support on the cd. I'm sure I could install it after boot time with apt-get or some such, but haven't tested this. Redeeming factor? It does support Ogg Vorbis out of the box. My gripe is... how many people keep ogg files on their windows systems (ok, I do but I'm weird)?

    Seriously though. This is a very good (and fast booting) LiveCD distro for what it offers. Try it out some time.
