Welcome to the club ... I find those bugs extremely annoying. Especially this one: They disabled the framebuffers! So if you're like me and love to work in high-res text modes from time to time (also a very good fallback option if something in the GUI goes wrong ...) and have a parameter such as vga=791 in your menu.lst file .... It's not working here anymore!! All your tty's remain black! (CTRL+ALT+F1 ... F6) ... That sucks big timehairy_Palms wrote:im kindof dissapointed that the bugs werent sorted for gutsy
Well ... a 80 x 25 text terminal just plain stinks and I think they're idiots that they even messed with this setting. ... I mean: Was it broken? Hell, NO! So why in the world did they have to mess with it??hairy_Palms wrote: so i dont bother to set large res terminals.
Exactly ... And as for being a "Vista rival": It isn't that hard to get compiz-fusion working on Ubuntu 7.04 (and probably the current Mint release too? ... haven't tried yet). It looks awesome. So for getting a "Vista rival" I'd right now rather stay with 7.04 and then install compiz-fusion on top of it instead of upgrading 7.10 ...jbaerbock wrote: I mean for saying Gutsy would be a great Vista rival and then even the load bar dosn't work is kinda sad.

There are other quite annoying things too. Desktop effects for example. They're hyping those everywhere. Great. But what they don't tell you is that you won't get to enjoy the really really cool ones unless you install a few extra packages. Too bad they're not telling you which ones (I had to Google this ...), and to really configure things the way you like you'd need to install another extra package. confused? After all the hype I assumed all this stuff would be there per default + "out of the box". Nope, it isn't.
Right now I see hardly any reason why one would want to upgrade to 7.10 if you have a perfectly running 7.04 system .... 7.10 just breaks too many things at the moment. Better wait a few weeks until the first patches + bugfixes are out ....
