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.

I have elected to stay with edgy for now. Feisty has some very nice features, however, for day to day use, edgy seems more responsive to me. I care little about compiz or beryl personally, though I'm sure they will both improve with time. Feisty "seems" to run slower than edgy on my machine(Sempron 3000, nvidia GeForce with shared memory, and I have 968 Megs of ram after the video card takes it,s share. I'm not saying Feisty is "slow", but edgy seems to work better for me at this time. I will admit that I stayed with dapper until recently for similar reasons. In the interest of full disclosure; I also use Debian etch, and find it slower than edgy, perhaps, there are some tweaks, that I am unaware of, but this is my two cents for what it's worth.

I was tempted to stay with Edgy.... But I wanted to try Feisty since it seemed to have more virtualization tweaks. Though let me tell you getting VMWare to run in Feisty was a pain. The problem is that the new Feisty Kernel using the Linux 2.6.20 branch and that has some changes that virtualization has to account for....

Your reason to move to feisty is more valid than mine as I don't use virtualization. I use my system as a home desktop only and , also have little intrest in virtualization at this time. I respect your view and hope to see GNU/Linux become more versitile as it is already far ahead of Windows in my opinion.

Just a fyi, I just recently upgraded to Fesity Fawn from Edgy, and installed VM Ware on my AMD1700 server. the only package I needed to get was the linux-headers-generic-386 or something like that to obtain the header sources. otherwise vmware installed without a hitch.
