Well, it's six months since the last one, so today was time for another Kubuntu upgrade! Didn't take quite as long as the last one - two hours (!) to download it all, but only half an hour or so to configure and install everything.
Not that there's much difference. New kernel, which is always nice as now my card reader and webcam 'just work' Also new is the Dolphin file manager, which I haven't really poked about at yet but it looks decent enough.h
I did have to fight with my wireless though. Again. It was fine in Feisty, but for some reason decided to be quite impressively broken after the reboot. One tiny change to a config file fixed it though, yay.
Despite that, I'm still so much happier using linux than windows. I've been doing some work this week, which means using Vista. I've still not really heard anything good about vista yet. I dunno, it doesn't bother me that much. Yeah, it annoys me, but no more than any other Windows does. The seemingly random switching of colour schemes is a bit annoying (Dreamweaver is fine with aero, but Fireworks kicks it back to 'basic' mode). It also seems to get very crap with the wireless connection after a while, which is annoying. Saying that, I'm not convinced our broadband is that great anyway - especially as at one point last week it was just about crawling along at the very high speed of 23kbps! For a 2mbit connection that's really quite poor...
