Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The Ubuntu team is proud to announce version 7.04 of the Ubuntu family of distributions (more info here and here). Ubuntu 7.04 is also the basis for new 7.04 releases of Kubuntu (screenshots) and Edubuntu. Ubuntu 7.04 will be supported for 18 months on both desktops and servers. Here is a review of Feisty Fawn, and it also seems that Michael Dell has it installed too. Get it while it's hot.

I'm thinking of buying a whole new HD to install Ubu/Feisty 7.04 on, all by itself,
and leaving my current,working install of Ubu 6.10 alone,intact!

I am NOT going to try any kinda miracle upgrade!

I believe that in that case it asks you during the install if you want it to break X in your other partition. Say "no" and you should be OK.

I'm only joking, of course.

But it wouldn't really *surprise* me if it went and wrote a few random bytes to the xorg.conf on your old partition.

Like I say, if "Fedora Eats Your Brane", "Ubuntu Eats Your X!" ;-)

People like to make fun of Ubuntu users, but I'll bet we know more about the ins and outs of xorg.conf than any other community simply out of sheer necessity.

Bah, Ubuntu users are spoiled. Everything I learned about X configuration I learned in Slackware. Ubuntu is a picnic comparatively. (Slack still has a special place in my heart, but I don't like spending so much time in upkeep anymore.)

You're damn right about that. I've never had to edit xorg as much I have in Ubuntu. Not that I'm complaining or anything.
