I love this release from Ubuntu. A mobile open source Ubuntu. Features and capabilities look excellent.
I use Ubuntu on my notebook PCs and love it. Certainly not perfect, but better than Windows any day. I of course have been a bit of a Windows expert for a long long time and still operate as one for family and friends, but looks like Vista will be the end of that for me, because I love Linux.
