Sweet, ubuntu is an excellent OS.
The only drawback for me is a lack of drivers for a couple of things. That's why I'm forced to use XP.
I'm having issues with x-fi sound card. There is no Linux support whatsoever. But that's my fault because I got the card before I got into Linux. Also having issues with ATI video card drivers that actually corrupted the whole OS on many occasions.
what ATI chipset are you running? Did the Open source drivers work?
I've been using ubuntu for a while now. One problem that seems to be present in all releases (including hardy) is that the boot time is poor. I use windows xp and freeBSD aswel and they both beat ubuntu when it comes to boot time. Anyone have any ideas?
