Ubuntu 8.10 Released (Intrepid Ibex)

Ubuntu 8.10 is released. You might want to read the release notes and the press release.

I waited until today to try out the ibex on my laptop, because my wireless card from intel had some firmwire issues with the new linux kernel (2.6.27) which weren't fixed in 8.10 for the beta version.

A lot of people are downloading from the servers. Before you start, make sure you have configured a repository, which is close to you (go to system->administration->software sources->download from->other-> select best server). You might also want to try out apt-p2p. Read a tutorial here.

If you are ready to upgrade to intrepid, press alt-f2 (or open the terminal) and type
update-manager -d

At first I had sound issues on my office computer, but killing and removing pulseaudio and switching to OSS worked (see forum post).

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
I find this matter to be really something that I believe I would never understand.
It kind of feels too complicated and extremely broad
for me. I am taking a look ahead on your subsequent put up, I'll attempt to get the hang of it!
