We liked this version of Ubuntu, with its very fast, new graphical installer based on the Live CD Faster system startup and login, simplified menu organization, graphical shutdown process, easy access to power management settings with GNOME Power Manager It also now includes GNOME 2.14.1, OpenOffice.org 2.0.2, X.org 7.0 and a plethora of included application choices, but there's still no VPN wizard, and playing DVDs should be simpler.

[The author describes the act of installing: "After clicking on the Install icon, I followed the prompts until the installation was complete." Sounds like a real nightmare, doesn't it? Seriously, the author presents a very good review, complete with screenshots and "warts". One of the "warts" the author points out, DVD playing, is a problem in the U.S. due to the lobbying of the movie cartel. -- grouch]
