Another very disturbing bug is if you close Evolution and shut down or restart you will get a screen full of Network Manager errors. The screen full of errors will appear every single time you shut down or restart!
The non usable floppy drive has a huge icon in the file browser! ( I guess this is there to remind the user that the drive will never be used again...}
There was more concern over Compiz than the base system itself!
I am ranting a bit but I had much higher expectations from an LTS Release. I am extremely disappointed in the Ubuntu Developer's and the poor quality of their release.

Even Microsoft would not release a piece of crap like this! I mean come on, these bugs were reported some time ago. They are still shuffling the floppy drive bug report around! The bug has been confirmed and moved numerous times.
I have already read two unfavourable reviews on Hardy already and I agree with the reviewer's. Meeting a deadline is more important than producing a quality product?
I hope Clem can overcome the new bugs Ubuntu has introduced and that Mint 5 will be a quality release.
As you can tell, I followed the development of Hardy and reported bugs, so I am especially disappointed about the condition of Hardy....
After upgrading, we discovered that we couldn't connect to our corporate servers with 8.04, despite having no problems with 7.10 and previous versions. Upon investigation, this proved due to a known and unfixed bug related to GNOME 2.22's new virtual filing system and Active Directory, which fails to establish authentication properly under various conditions. While this bug is extant, Hardy Heron cannot be recommended for enterprise use.
it is a showstopper, which should not have been left unfixed
During the hardy development cycle I discovered this horrible "feature"; While booting up choose a "recovery mode" item from the grub menu, and ubuntu boots into single mode. So far so good. Now at the end of the boot process it will present you with a nice ncurses menu to "fix xorg" , "root shell" and something else. Choose "root shell" and you get one without even being asked for a password!
