I have problems too!
In my case, I was downloading in full speed everything runs smooth.
Well….until the restart.
The bug report manager was showing about 20 windows and none of them was closing (cause the error occurs again and again). I think some of the software I had in 7.10 was incompatible but then the new version had to notify me to remove them or at least letting me know..
So what I did? Just hit reset and went back to windows XP
Before that though, because I had a lot of troubles with my ATI card (as usual with new ATI cards under Linux) I tried to enable the restricted drivers and restart. Here we go like the old times no signal once again. I fixed it but then the 20+ error reports appear again (I hate this report thing reminds me of windows lol).
I will do a fresh install and hope this time everything will go smooth…!
But I've noticed some really funny staff. I have only used Ubuntu 7.10 (my 1st Linux OS so far) and something I found annoying was having to different option for graphic setting (1 to set screen resolution and one that includes screen resolution + drivers setting). So I was wondering, what’s the point of the screen resolution option menu (since we have it in a tab next to driver’s option under display setting menu).
So guess what in 8.04 instead of moving the screen resolution (was odd and useless) they moved the display settings option lol (I didn’t check if it was hidden and I had to make it appear, but it wasn’t there by default and not even under under control centre).
I hope in your next update guys to have in mind users already running the software, and make their life easier instead of difficult. I have never seen soooo many error windows in my life. I have used Mac OS version 10 and later, windows 95se/98/98se/ME/XP up to sp2 and I have never ever received so many errors.
What we want is an OS easy to use without errors and avoid the troubles of the past caused by windows. I want to avoid error messages and slow OS and of course not to format my drive to put the new version (as we used to do in windows).
