I got the pre release for one reason,so my Sierra Wireless 306 might work.

And it does! Looks better, Ubuntu Software Center sits were Add / Remove was,Music Store coming.Just glad the internet stick worked so easy.

this doesn"t make sense why, too remove a program many people usefull, it"s not like, it"s cost"s anything to keep it in 10.04

If you upgraded it will not be removed. It will still be there since you already had it installed. On fresh installs it is not installed by default.

does anyone know if it's possible to add the MeMenu into Karmic? Been googling it for awhile, but nothing.

Is audio going to be better/fixed? Does anyone have a source for that?

I just hope its not bloated. And I also hope that it has improved
Ati support. I don't think I'm going to upgrade. For what ever
reason I always have trouble with the 04 release and also have far
less trouble with the 10 release. If they decide not to change the
boot screen or any other that features at least they can leave the
option open for us. :)

To name a few:

No Gimp (nothing instead)
No Xsane (simpler program instead)
Improved nautilus (bi-panel alla midnight commander, very handy)
Eliminated most of the games (some remain)
Included Pitivi Video Editor
Instant messaging and social network programs included
Very improved iPod support

...and counting :-)

Here's what I've noticed in 10.04 vs 9.10

Wireless is WAY more stable. In 9.10 and 9.04 I had poor signal strength and it would disconnect frequently. In 10.04 wireless networking is rock steady with signal strength around 60-85% vs 14-40%

Boot times have significantly decreased...30% faster bootup if not better.

Memory use seems to have decreased as well by around 30%

The overall Ubuntu experience seems to be more refined and more responsive.

So, for me, it's not all the additions or removal of applications and features so much as a much improved overall experience.

I have installed 10.04,and also have 9.10 on the same box,and the thing that is new is better hardware support out of the box. In 9.10 at the beginning I had no wireless,no wired, problems with Nvidia drivers and no suspend or resume from suspend. Also problems with cd/dvd drive. All of these things are working on 10.04.
When 9.10 was released I noticed many,many postings about the Software Centre I think most of those people should be happy with the new one.
This is a good OS imo.

Help! The buttons to close, maximize and minimize have moved to the wrong (as in, not right) side of the windows. It takes way to long to change them back.

This helped me (although it was meant the other way around):

I don't like the choice Mark made, but I'd forgive him if it was easy to change back. Which means, if there was a button for it in the menu (for example in System - Preferences - Windows).

You can use this GUI python script to easily change the layout of the buttons.

Ubuntu Tweek also allows re-ordering of the buttons in the title-bar.
