    I have not had a single major problem yet, and only one minor one. I'm happy.

    Don't run any command with rm unless you know what you're doing. Read this for more information.

    Yes it's safe. (Unless you have an Nvidia GFX card apparently, but I wouldn't know: ATI for me.) Jaunty is definitely quite stable.

    But for home connection I'm pretty pleased (note: really is 22/3 MB connection, torrents slowed the test)
    I can't resist a good brag.

    jaunty still crashes randomly for me, and no comments or anything on the bug report. yayyyyyy

    other then that its much better. Of course i'm still miffed about notify-osd, other then that, improvements all around.

    and they, oh yeah, provide support for ATI drivers again. i updated to jaunty on my desktop comp and there is no possible way to launch X right now.
    xinit doesn't work....i get a choppy screen with a rectangular mouse pointer
    aticonfig --initial doesn't do anything anymore
    [recovery mode] try to fix X also doesn't work. does nothing

    my desktop with 50GB of music on it is a useless 10 lb paperweight.

    Well, you'd have to install fglrx first!

    Nvidia driver fine here on my card. Has been since alpha 1.

    Really? I don't know if its just my card then or what? I'm using an nvidia 7600 GS. I've had this problem since 8.10. I did a fresh install and enabled the restricted drivers only to find my x won't start. Same thing in 9.04 RC, all versions of the nvidia driver produce the error, yet i'm currently running 8.04 LTS without a hitch with the drivers enabled.
