    What was the first thing you noticed in Gutsy?

    The first thing I noticed was that it had drivers for my graphic driver installed.

    On Feisty and other releases I had to install these drivers to get 1400x1050 resolution.

    The first thig I noticed was that the windows title bar was about 400pixels wider than it should be. Thankfully by just changing the effects it came back to normal.

    The fonts were really big, although this was 2 months ago.

    The font was HUGE when I logged in and there was no splash screen. The wallpaper was still brown, but actually looked cool.

    The black screen it greeted me with.
    I built my rig for Linux, it has a 7950GT. I'm used to getting the wrong resolution, but a blank screen???

    My broadcomm wireless card was working as soon as it booted up.

    I got my sound to work with minimal effort compared to Feisty, my new laptop can mount CDs without the need for the all_generic_ide kernel parameter and the live CD booted into the GUI without the need to change the driver to vesa (GeForce 8400 GS)
    Huge improvements over Feisty. Totally amazed!

    Cool Re: What was the first thing you noticed in Gutsy?

    Better support for my Bluetooth mouse.

    Graphics/Dual Monitor GUI.

    Had to un-install beagle. I hate desktop search.

    More folders under /home - like Windows.

    New Open Office.
    If at first you don't succeed - just buy the company and tell them to make the one you want.
