Well, yesterday, I installed the newest Ubuntu version: 8.04

Here is a few things I dont like:

It comes packaged with Firefox Beta 5 (B5!!)
KDE 3.5 is really buggy
Compiz Fusion is a really annoyance (it crashes)

:-)

But I will live.

Firefox 2 won't be supported in 3 years. Firefox 3 will.
LTS requires some specific standards as to which applications will have constant security updates through its lifetime.

They also bundled it with 8.04 because it is very fast, as fast as Safari. They'll probably offer the RTM as an upgrade when it's available.

A question about screen resolution at start-up.

When i had installed Ubuntu (possibly, the others too), when i logged in then changed the resolution to 1024x786, but when i restarted and got to the login screen, it was in 800x600.

But when i logged in again it was 1024x786.
So i keeps my resolution in my account but it doenst apply to the login screen.

Anybody knows how to get the login screen from 800x600 to 1024x786 or more at logon, not only on my account.

Well, I like 8.04 LTS, but for some virtualization software like Virtualbox, it can be a pain in the neck, VMWare runs it fine if you use the Alternate Install CD or DVD

8.04 has given me no problems. It really is a tremendous step forward for all linux distros.
