    Re: Natty development cycle coming to an end.

    Hi all,

    I'm not as hardcore as those who enabled natty repos shortly after maverick was released. However, I have been testing Natty since Dec 3rd -my 1st full Ubuntu testing experience.

    It has been frustratingly fun...I only had 1 critical breakage which required a re-install - which was my fault.

    Submitting bug reports has flooded my inbasket with fellows testers from around the world.

    Using unity from a horrible mess to a usable "whyisthisinplaceifitisntanybetterthanGnomedesktop " utility has been quite peculiar.

    I hope compiz, unity, and ubuntu tweak learn how to exist in harmony. I have given up on plymouth, as is seems to be worse in natty than lucid.

    The 2.6.38 kernel is incredible compared to 2.6.27 (Ibex), when I 1st installed ubuntu. The sound, performance, and fun factor are a helluva deal - FREE!

    I wont do anymore testing until 12.04 (Prolific Pangolin??)...I will reiterate to Ubuntu beginners that testing releases is time- consuming and frustrating (but fun if you like to diagnose and fix your PC). Do not ditch your stable releases for development versions...and,if all you can offer are complaints, it's a good idea to stay with stable releases.

    Peace.

    Looking forward to the new testing, but will be looking in the general help section to see if I can help new people. With so much change in 11.04 there will be a lot of questions. Please follow the general help to see how to make it easier to bring people in.

    It has been fun testing and many thanks to those out there that have answered my questions. I have run a testing partition since Dapper and I will continue.

    I rather feel that I accomplished a lot, but not nearly enough

    At the end of the day I think I can honestly say that I gave 100%. It's often not easy fighting with the devs and designers.

    And there's a possibility we'll see one more build:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/wubi/+bug/771517/comments/11

    I've run through no less than 5 tests with each of 6 different iso images this time. Maybe we'll have a 7th

    I'm looking forward to Oneiric and the challenges, especially following up on ubiquity development.

    Nahhh dude, Penguin would be toooo obvious...look at that linux sticker on your PC!

    The 2nd most obvious choice is Placated Platypus

    Peace and a ^5 to all who endured Natty before it became a boring final release.
