I’m close to running out of patience with my Pavilion‘s Ubuntu installation, and since I like to try and break things before I install something new, I made the jump from Gutsy to Hardy (which is still alpha) and wondered if anything would stop working.
Nothing yet, although there was a weird stutter between updates of bash. I recall something off one of the mailing lists saying bash had been miscompiled (is that right? am I remembering that wrong?) and as a result a lot of other things were crashing. In my case though, it worked after a slight half-step and hasn’t been an issue at all.
And pardon me for being a wallpaper fanboii, but that heron is amazing work. I really like that one.
By the way, was there always an audio preview for mp3 and ogg files in Nautilus, when you hover the cursor over them? I honestly never noticed that before. But the last time I used Nautilus regularly was … summer of 2006?
I’m going to test a few things for the Hardy guide next month, then zap this installation and call it done. I need a machine that doesn’t take three minutes to start.
