And it keeps getting better

I installed tribe5 on my laptop about a week ago, and (to no surprise) it just keeps getting better.

Things mostly "just work", but my major pain is with graphics drivers and acpi:

- ATI restricted driver (fglrx): no compiz, suspend/hibernate hardlock.
- ATI opensource driver (radeon): no compiz, no 3d, screen garbage at times, no hibernate.

IMHO developers should probably give higher importance to these kinds of bugs because (specially on notebooks) suspend is a MUST!

Other than that, i'm actually extremely happy with gutsy.
