Hi, I been reading a lot of very positive things about Ubuntu 10.4. I am realy looking foward to using it, when it's released. I have found Ubuntu to quite stable when it's first comes out, but not always.
Like others I try many different operating systems (It's a hobby with me.) and occasionally I find a new one that has too many bugs to be stable enough for reliable use. So this is what I do. On my primary computer I wait for two months, watching the forms for signs of trouble. If the system is getting the go sign I install it. This saves me a lot of grief!
Many will says this boring way to do things. I agree, but it minimizes my grief!
What I do in order to get around this, is to install the brand new or a beta OSD, on an old machine, and try it out. This way I have a working machine, and can sample the latest and greatest, without suffering.
I pass this on because it took me a couple of years to come to this point, and I hope this helps someone.
Bye for now.
