Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Earlier this month I covered Ubuntu's Migration Assistant, which is one of the features that will be found in Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn. The migration-assistant is designed to make it very easy for Microsoft Windows converts to jump into the Ubuntu world by automatically transferring files and settings. However, when I originally tried out Ubuntu migration-assistant I had run into a few bugs that ultimately rendered the assistant useless. However, in that post Evan had commented that the two major bugs being recently corrected, so this morning I gave this installation assistant another shot."

Firefox bookmarks transfer right now. Plugins, settings, and themes will transfer in Feisty+1.

AIM usernames transfer from AIM Triton, full AIM accounts transfer from Gaim.

Outlook Express accounts transfer to Evolution. OE emails, Thunderbird accounts and emails will transfer in Feisty+1.

I may ask, because I really don't know: Will this work with every "Windows" derivate and subversion? With "XP", it seems to work quite fine, but what about the older stuff still in use, such as "Windows 2000" or "Windows ME"?
