Gusty beta: Orca still unreliable for use with applications that required gksudo.
I downloaded Ubuntu 7.10 beta and was pleasantly surprised to find out that it finally magnifies under its magnification window, which basically makes practical its used for full screen magnification.
However, the bliss didn't last long, as it is still too hard (almost impossible) for a visually impaired user to manage system settings that require root priviledges. Programs such as Synaptic, and the Shared Folders applet under Settings still result in a speechless Orca. The magnifier works for the first one, but then locks up as soon as you launch a second program that requires the superuser rights.
sudo: A word from Spanish that means "I sweat".
