    It's really nice (and fast). However, there seems to be a problem with the newer kernel and my wireless (realtek rtl8187b). I had to install an older 2.31.12 kernel from the ppa for now. I had similar problems with PCLinuxOS 2010 and Mandriva 2010 but at least they recognized my wireless card. Not to sweat, I only occasionally take my laptop to work, and will use the older kernel for those situations.

    Got it installed dual-boot with Win 7 Home P on my el cheapo - but free :D - HP G61 laptop, for signing 3 years with local Telco. Looks pretty good so far.

    Running well, bit heavy on the RAM, like all new Ubuntu releases. It'll get sorted by and by, no doubt.

    RAM usage started a bit heavy but after a day it has normalized to my previous Karmic levels.

    I absolutely love Lucid. I chose to install the netbook remix but log into the normal gnome gui. The integration of the applications into Ubuntu One is wonderful. Ubuntu is well on its way to becoming a distro that will attract fresh new users to Linux. I also like the Ubuntu Software Center, this time around it wasn't difficult at all to install up to date applications. Ubuntu Lucid and Ubuntu Dapper/Edgy are two different animals. Ubuntu developers are making sure that the users stay out of console unless something catastrophic happens. I want to spend my time using the OS than tweaking it. The good ole console days are nearly dead and I'm not complaining one bit about it.

    Been running Lucid since the RC and so far have 2 of 3 machines upgraded and running very very well on them, not one single glitch.
    Even Evolution is now playing well with my gmail account (used to run very very slow).
    Booting is fast, approx 10s from grub to login prompt.
    Font rendering is looking very slick as well.
    X/compiz and the intel drivers all running very slickly as well.

    After a really bad experience with Windows 7, has been refreshingly painless.

    Anyone getting the Plymouth bootup screen? I'm not getting it on my Lenovo G530 with an Intel graphics card. Just so you know, I haven't been getting it since beta 1 or 2 (I get it on shutdown). I've only installed Lucid on my Lenovo so far.

    It appears you know me quite well. :) . LTS really doesn't interest me...especially with btrfs as an install option coming in the next release.

    sudo su
    echo FRAMEBUFFER=y > /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash
    update-initramfs -u

    Reboot. Startup time might be degraded as a result, though. See: https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/ source/plymouth/ bug/540801

    Thanks, Eice. Worked like a charm. Plymouth is now displaying and I can't tell much difference in bootup time either (if any). Thanks for the bug link, too.

    Thanks, again.

    Not sure if this is a bug: lock the screen to screensaver, then to log back in there is no password field, but typing the password then enter does unlock. Could this be intended, not to display a pw field? Otherwise still running extremely well.
