So i'm curious. Now with Intrepid Ibex here, who's ready for JJ?

I might wait till final release i think or maybe even the next LTS.



Poll is multiple choice.
Should have included Beta, but since i havent it falls into the Alpha choice

I'll wait for next LTS, for me LTS is the best of Ubuntu family :-)

I always try to resist the temptation, but most likely I'll be running the alphas by Christmas :)

I usually jump on between Alpha 6 and the Beta.

I think it's a little too early too be excited about 9.04. I mean, 8.10 just came out.

That would be like getting excited about Windows 8 when Windows 7 hasn't even gotten into beta stage yet.

Or like being excited about the fifth season of Heroes, when we aren't even halfway through the third season.

Believe it or not, there's quite a few people here that do not like to stay on the stable release. :)

Ready and waiting. Hopefully Jaunty will address the speed of the kernel when comparing 8.10,8.04, 7.10, to 7.04. In saying that Intrepid has improved with wireless and detecting multiple DVD drives (at least for me).

If they actually do something with the interface change they promised, then alphas for me.

As a Compiz dev, I need to jump onto the new-X-server train as soon as possible. I'll be pumping my laptop through the alphas, as I did with Intrepid and Hardy.

DRI2, GEM, XInput2 from the X server, possibly Plymouth for a bootsplash...

I used to be so slow on upgrading (heck, the desktop at home still has Edubuntu Feisty! ) but I'm speeding it up this time. I'm hoping to upgrade to II before December.

The Server, though, I'm hoping to go LTS to LTS.

My bigger problem, though, is sticking with only one distro! :lolflag:

I'm ready now, I've been using Intrepid since the repositories opened up. It's time for something new. :)

You didn't have a poll item for really early adopters, so I didn't vote.

Yep, should be quite an improvement with anyone using Intel hardware, or any other compliant driver. I'll be on board pre-alpha :)

Definitely alphas, probably beginning from the first one (it'll be available on 20th November, hope it'll be a convenient way to upgrade). My Intel video card is an absolute garbage, so I'm waiting for DRI2, but Amarok2 may be also interesting... I'm actually considering moving to the KDE4 after the release.

Alphas just for testing purposes, but Intrepid to enjoy live & fun.

I hastily updating to 8.10. From now on, I'll wait for a stable release.

I voted "yes, sort of". I'll run alphas/beta and rcs in VMs (probably Xubuntu) for testing purposes. But I have changed my mind about new releases on my "real" machines - I haven't even gone to Intrepid yet on those. Hardy was pain for me until 8.04.1 and I don't want to that again. I don't find LTS releases any more stable that the intermediate ones on first release.

Sources.list already points to jaunty so just waiting for some updates ;)
I use Arch as my main OS and just tend to use Ubuntu for testing/messing around with

Im checking out the alpha right now. Im definitly hoping to finally have flicker free accelerated video with ATI cards and Compiz. i.e. DRI2 support.

Linux Dream Scene once again :D

Could you please post a general impression about fedora 10 here when you're done with it? (Or PM it to me?)

I am curious about fedora 10, but I don't want to install it just yet :)

Same here. I can't download anything until tonight and with the holiday it's going to be a while before I can try it out.

BTW, are you downloading the DVD?

Regarding extra installations....

Check out VirtualBox. pretty much run anything in a VM. great for testing out new releases etc. Even XP, vista and such.

although of course this is not so useful for running on your native Proc or utilizing graphics and such :).

cheers

I'll probably jump on before the Beta.
