Ubuntu Edgy

Ubuntu Edgy is now out. Release highlights include:
  • Firefox 2.0... which isn't really a huge improvement over 1.5.
  • a splash screen that doesn't work (at least for me)
  • Xorg 7.1
  • ATI drivers that are too old to work with Xorg 7.1 properly
  • a compile of MPlayer that complains about its compilation options every time your run it
  • more shades of brown and orange
  • etc.
It also has up to date software, like Edgy isn't bad though, worth upgrading if you don't mind a few hours of hassle. It fixes a few pesky bugs in Dapper, like not being able to change the frequency of my CPU's second core through the GUI. And having the latest things is always nice.
