Default Ubuntu 6.06

Ubuntu 6.06 was released today... has anyone installed it yet? Comments?

I personally ordered the Ubuntu cd and am downloading Xubuntu to install on my older computer. I have heard that Xubuntu is fast on any computer and works well for old computers.

more icon/visual goodies, updated software such as Gnome, Open Office, Gimp. They also have a new updated easy install Add/Remove application which will auto install many good applications automatically. Also Dapper will support a wide range of Broadcam chipsets and a lot of other hardware supports.

If you want more info of any type you can PM me or IM me at Mike 763291
