Overall, I’m really happy with Gutsy. I find myself spinning the desktop cube just because I can. But I haven’t done much yet. Today I think I’m going to create a separate partition for my /home directory, and I’m going to pull the pictures I took yesterday off my camera and see about uploading them to Flickr.
I have some small issues. First, the gnash free flash plugin doesn’t really work for Firefox on a 64 bit system. The proprietary flash plugin is fine.
My panel icons are displaying at the center of the panel, not all the way on the right like they’re supposed to. I haven’t really searched for a solution to this yet.
Other than that, this is a pretty slick OS. Wireless has been perfect - the only setup I did was selecting my network and providing my WPA password once. The frequent disconnects I got on Feisty have not happened at all.
Gutsy supports my Nvidia video card much better than Feisty. I just had to choose a different driver in a drop down menu and then reset the screen resolution.
Anyway, if you’ve been thinking about trying out Ubuntu, now is the time.
