Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) arrived just a few days ago with promises of better hardware compatibility, included proprietary software and drivers, and more user friendliness. Was it wort the wait? And more importantly - Is it finally time to "Make the Switch"?" Read the review here. Elsewhere, "First thoughts on Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn" was published at ZDNet. Update: A reply article to the two linked above.

Seems that our old friend GRUB is causing Ubuntu a lot of problems.

I brought up the subject of GRUB-related dual-booting problems in seeming excess, on the linuxforums dot org site, and was told that indeed GRUB is way-old, and there's a new GRUB2 in the works somewhere!
I see FAR too many GRUB-related problems, and if I were Canonical, I'd seriously get my GRUB act together, and soon, coz it's screwing up a lot of people and their Windoze data, and is not winning Ubuntu any friends!

I simply will not take the risk: I keep my two separate OSes right where they belong, on two separate HDs.
My system is primitive as hell (like me) but I plug and unplug those two as and when I see fit.
No GRUB BS for me.
