Hey all. I installed the RC a couple days ago. Is there any reason I should reinstall with the final version? Either way, here is my experience so far:
Wireless works great! I configured madwifi using subversion and have had no problems thus far.
Battery Life is awesome! I'm actually getting better battery life in Hardy than I did in OS X. I'm close to 3.5 hours with wireless on, light internet, open office and brightness set to about 3/4. Not bad at all. I did have an issue today where powertop reported acpi wakeups at about 500 (twice as much as I pulled without it) so the battery life dropped significantly. I restarted and it was gone.
Compizfusion works fine. It gets a little jumpy sometimes, but nothing bad.
Backlit keyboard does not work (yet) I'm still looking for a fix for this. Any ideas?
iSight works fine.
Keymapping is fine.
Volume is a little weird. Is there a way to change the increments in which volume is adjusted? I'm getting really large jumps when adjusting PCM, and when I use Master Volume the bottom half of the volume bar is non-audible. Any ideas?
Let me know if you guys want to know anything else. It's been awhile since I used Ubuntu last (finally got rid of OS X for the last time) so I'm a little rusty, but I'll catch back up again.
Once again, is there any reason I should update to the final or am I ok with the newest RC? Thanks!
