    There have been numerous threads about this..we must sit and wait
    "There is no failure, just ways that don't work" And when this is realized, people are much happier in life because if they stop trying, they fail as to give up. If people take this approach in life, they will never ever fail"

    You could do what i do and whip up a little script to see if the final hardy iso file exists on the server every half an hour I did this for the last one so as soon as it was released it would automatically start downloading it.

    The links would be:
    i386 - http://releases.ubuntu.com/hardy/ubu...sktop-i386.iso
    x64 - http://releases.ubuntu.com/hardy/ubu...ktop-amd64.iso

    Hey are they going to decrease the size to 700 MB ? because I just downloaded the latest RC for PPC and its 750.. that's 2 much since a lot of older PPC machines only have a optical drive.. plus then it wouldn't be Ubuntu ( 1 Disk ).

    I just hope it fits a CD, I don't have a blank DVD and the stores are closed

    What time zone is the release date based anyway, I imagine there are countries already in their fridays.
