View Full Version : [ubuntu] I'm still running beta 8.10

November 3rd, 2008, 06:01 PM
The beta version of 8.10 has been running so well on my laptop that I actually forgot about the official 'release' date. LOL.

I think I got a Kernel update on the 30th or 31ist... Maybe it was on the 1st... Haven't checked the exact date.

Question: Do I need to install the official release? I want to continue to receive updates.

Never had a beta work so well I wanted to keep it!

Thanks in advance.

I've got a Toshiba A215-S5818.

I'm running the 64bit version of 8.10- I was shocked that the wifi, video drivers and sound didn't need manual installs or workarounds.

I think the icing on the cake is that my lock-up problem vanished upon installing the beta! It had gotten so terrible I was willing to try the beta as a last resort solution...
