    I agree, if it wasn't for the fact that I have to learn Vista to support end users, I would have ditched it long ago. My work gave me a sweet Dell XPS laptop that I dual boot between Feisty and Vista. At work, I manage my whole 96 site Windows network from my Linux box though. I use beryl and emerald. I like pretty things .

    i have never ever seen a linux commercial on TV in my life before in Australia. when ubuntu releases feisty fawn, they should make a "commercial tease ad" saying why linux is better than vista, just like how the apple mac ads in australia show why mac is better than vista. if ubuntu can make a ad now and release it as soon as fesity fawn releases, i reckon millions of people will change their minds.

    I upgraded to Feisty - Herd 5, last Tuesday. From what I have read, by installing all of the updates, I will be where I need to be on April 19. I will be ready to go.

    Yes.

    In fact, I have already adopted it after Herd4. I used to use Dapper, which was excellent - but has some performance problems - principally, some OpenOffice Issues with Impress (very slow slide transitions, terrible font rendering) - but those (serious) problems were solved with Feisty Fawn.

    Overall I did not like Edgy - and the upgrade from Dapper to Edgy didn't work well at all.

    Feisty is MUCH, MUCH, MUCH, MUCH better than Edgy, easier to install, easier to configure and got a bulletproof wireless set-up.

    Unfortunately, Feisty Fawn got bite by the legacy nVIDIA 9631 implementation just prior to it's release, but I just roll my own driver a la tselliot's guide.

    Feisty Fawn is by far and away the best Ubuntu so far, and the easiest GNU/Linux I've ever used.

    I already updated to Feisty a few weeks ago on my desktop. The only problem I had was it wouldn't boot after the update. After some searching on the forums, I found that I had to set some modules to load (to handle the SATA drive). No problems since. The other week I updated my Ubuntu partition on my laptop without problem.

    Yes,
    I'll upgrade right away.
    In fact, I have Feisty Beta running already on 2 machines.

    There are nice tools included, what I can't wait to use, like, NTFS mounting, Compiz,
    better network connection, etc.
