Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ars has a review of Ubuntu 7.10. They conclude: "Ubuntu 7.10 provides an unparalleled desktop Linux experience and sets new standards for power and ease of use. This release lives up to Ubuntu's reputation and delivers cutting-edge new features and solid enhancements. Although Ubuntu 7.10 is very impressive, some of the new additions - particularly Compiz and Tracker - lack the polish and robustness that they need to truly shine. These technologies are still a work in progress and give Ubuntu 7.10 a slightly unfinished feel. Ubuntu also unfortunately inherits some of the minor weaknesses of the GNOME desktop environment."

Just upgraded. I thought it would be all Compiz-fusion but all I got was CLI. ;) Lost X. Got X working just to find that there is no KDM/GDM running. Left with black unresponisive screen after Nvidia-splash.
Lucky me that I also have the very much stable Debian Sid...

It is really not a problem, I can fix it, but it is VERY irritating. Update-manager is a joke. Well, I have learned my lession, just clean installs from now on.
