I'm loving how fast it is and all that, but god, i hated the new Indicator Applet
The new notification display is soooo annoying and there is the obvious Intel video regressions. I honestly don't feel like fixing or trying to fix the display issues so I might just reinstall 8.10. The installer seems buggy as well since it would crash on creating a vfat partition on this drive.
Jaunty seems to be another lifeless sleeper, only the notifications seem any worth but really it doesnt seem to be a worthwhile release...
Also all the regressions, I mean why couldnt they be patched before such a critical release?
Makes me want to ditch Ubuntu entirely for something with a little more kick like Mandriva.

- Bullet fast (I'm using EXT4).
I love it so far, boot time is incredible, my Lenovo IdeaPad Y430 is averaging at about a 15 second boot time or less (I haven't actually used bootchart yet to get the exact number, but i'm sure it's a lot less than 15 seconds).
I for one love the new notification style, It integrates nicely with pidgin and everything else and doesn't look out of place like the old ones used to.
Overall, this is my favorite release so far.
Well, the download is about 92% complete, so I'd say the experience is pretty good so far!
I like it, and have it on three machines.
Forum DOs and DON'Ts
Never assume that information you find using a search engine is up-to-date.
Many incremantal improvements to the Gnome desktop have greatly enhanced my ubuntu experience.
* Middle mouse scroll in compact view
* better spacing in compact view
* Automatic installation of missing codecs
* bunch of others that i noticed and forgot...
I guess that is the point, functionality that you expect to be there is simply there. imagine my shock when i tried to middle mouse scroll in compact view in Intrepid and saw no mp3's scrolling by....but the Gnome team always gets the job done..and they have again.
