Taking Ubuntu 9.04 Out For A Spin

"Defeated, I burned a copy of Alpha 5 instead of the daily image that I had, I figured that the error I was experiencing was probably due to a bug in the latest image. With Alpha 5, the installation failed again, with an error indicating that my hard drive is defective. (Which isn't true). The next time though, the install succeeded. I’m not exactly sure why I was able to install it the second time, because I didn't do anything different.

"After the installation was complete, I was presented with the GDM log in screen, which was sporting a brand new theme. I think the new theme looks awesome, yet some people hate it. I guess it's impossible to please everyone. (I apologize, I wasn't able to get a snapshot of it, but Softpedia has a picture of it in their screenshot tour, located here)."
