I love Ubuntu. Nice and easy. openSUSE is pretty nice but I had some problems with an integrated nic on the most recent versions (10.x-11.x) haven't had that with Ubuntu in a long time. I've been wanting to use it at my work... save $140 per PC vs Win XP pro, but AD integration is probably the biggest hurdle. If I was more familiar with Linux directory services I would make its own little ecosystem but thats going to have to wait until I have time. Looking forward to the full review.

Ya, it has the XP window borders and says things like "Windows has a problem", when I get them I'm just like "Ya, I know" LOL :)

This is great news, I'm looking forward to trying it.

BTW, what's with all the Mac OS comparisons by people who don't know Mac OS? Are you guys not running Windows? How about how the new Ubuntu compares to the OS you are already struggling with?

Will do. I was debating going that route (and still might at some point, perhaps try the KDE variant instead of GNOME), however i just finished configuring all my programs, aliases, conky, desktop, etc, and i just don't think i have it in me to do it all again so soon.

Looks nice, but when I try to download it the server gets so slow, and i'm using 100.0mbps of blazing college wifi.
But I want to know when the next official 2 year maintenance Ubuntu OS comes out.

Ya, it's a little clogged right now because everyone is trying to get it. 10.04 "Lucid Lynx" will be the next LTS, look for it near the end of April.

Was using the beta before. It's pretty neat but I get bored after about 10 minutes since all you can do is browse the web. There are no real games and no good music software/DAWs. Since I use my computer mainly to make music and play games, that means Ubuntu is pretty much useless. Plus Win7 is more streamlined and polished :)

Ya, the servers are really busy (a good sign I think, so I have to change DL servers twice, but the ISO is now downloaded and the disk is being burned as I type.... (mmmmmm the smell of fresh Ubuntu..) :)

Try wine, it is supposed to support some windows apps and games.

I really wanted to try Linux once upon a time, and was told Ubuntu was the easiest to get in to, but after spending 2 hours tryinmg to get myu sodding graphics card recognised I just ditched it, I really dont have time to go through all that for every bit of hardware I want to use, I want my computer to allow me to enjoy myself or do useful productive things without having to spend hours faffing around with it first.

Kubuntu 9.10 is a Windows7 killer, they've really done a nice job with it. I installed a dual-boot of Kubuntu 9.10 beta on my non-techie buddy's computer when I fixed it for him and he about nutted himself, he looked like a kid on Christmas.
 
What about Fedora,SUSE,Solaris,Gentoo? No news for those eh?

Doubt it. Nothing will kill Windows until Linux gets modern games (Crysis, MW,etc) natively.
