That looks pretty nice...too Mac-ish, but it's nice.

@dude_se: Nice them, I used to use that one; I'm on Vista SP2 btw.

Yeah, I'm using the pre-beta of SP2 for Vista. It does seem to have a performance increase but for some reason boot takes SOOOO long! I'm at the boot screen for like a minute and a half, then I'm at a black screen for 30 seconds, then it goes to the login screen, then it takes maybe 30 seconds to go to my desktop for it to start loading...but when it's all done it's all nice and fast.

Maybe it's because it's pre-beta. I don't know...just a guess.

I actually really like 8.10, but I'm just gonna wait for the next LTS. I kinda wanted Long term support so I don't have to upgrade every 6 months.

does ubuntu allow you to upgrade from a previous version or do you have to reinstall the whole thing every time?
