Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu It is that time of year again: a new Ubuntu release is upon us. The beta version of Ubuntu 8.04 was released a few days ago, so I decided to give it a try and see what new features and improvements they have shoved into this one. As always, this is as much a preview of the latest GNOME release (2.22) as it is of Ubuntu itself. Read on for the preview.

Apply doesn't really make sense for settings that can quickly take effect. If you want to change something, just click somewhere else.

Instant-apply is part of the gnome human interface guidelines:

That's exactly what he's saying... he doesn't like that "feature"...

I sort of agree, there should be a "restore defaults" button or something...

I don't think he meant that, I'd say he meant a good old Cancel button, that would drop the applied change and "restore" what was there previously (not the defaults). That feature (i.e. "cancel") should be a real PITA to implement ;)
