I've tried the latest offering of Ubuntu v8.10 "Intrepid Ibex" and had some stability problems. For very little new in the way of features, I've taken it off and returned to v8.041 LTS. I had video rendering problems with nVidia video cards. I'll wait for the v8.10 LTS (long term support) version.
This month I customized my desktop with the following tweaks:
- Beatles wallpaper
- Tigris theme from gnome-look.org
- MAC4Lin icons and window title bar
- Audacious media player
- K3B CD/DVD burning software
- iFox Metal Firefox skin
- Thunderbird Email client
- Wine: running uTorrent and Picasa graphic viewer
Until next time...
