How to Help Your Business Become an AI Early Adopter


""I'm looking forward to this release. 9.10 is mostly stable, I could use a good update that breaks my intel video and wireless chips even though they were fine, plus overhauls the USB method so not much works anymore."

"That's exactly where I'm at. I had a pretty good thing going in Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. Everything that was ever going to work pretty much did. Yeah I had a bit of instability with one of my wireless adapters, fixed in 8.10/9.04, and I fairly quickly figured out how to tame the new NetworkManager (upgrading with wireless from 8.04 is NOT recommended, by me anyway, if you plan to use a wired interface after the fact).

"And I did the upgrade from 8.04 through 8.10 to 9.04 in a single weekend solely to be ready for 9.10. As I've said more than once, I wanted newer apps, and I had no idea so many things would break. But break they did."
