So I’ve had 8.10 installed for just under a week now, and so far, all is well
I have actually been making use of a tabbed Nautilus (yay!) which I didn’t think I would. I’ve also been using my VPS to torrent the desktop and alternate versions of Intrepid (32 bit versions). Stats of that at the time of writing are:
Desktop – Uploaded: 8126 MB
Alternate – Uploaded: 1680 MB
As you may have guessed – the alternate iso has only been seeding for a day or so. But this is what VPS’s are for I’ll continue seeding until Sunday night (GMT).
As for what I think of Intrepid on my laptop…well…I love it (as always). The only downside to it that I can complain about is the fact that unless I play my audio at near inaudible volumes (thus defeating the object of audio ). The sound distorts like a music concert recorded on a mobile phone (cell phone for the Americans reading this ).
Luckily – I don’t need to use the sound a lot, I’ve been playing my music from my iPhone and it’s dock, as it has a lineout on the rear of the dock
All in all – I think Intrepid is a decent release, though I totally understand people sticking with 8.04.1 as it’s an LTS. I mean, I was considering it, but I love upgrading!!
In other news – that isn’t worthy of it’s own post – I’m going to be going to a LUG meeting next week, it’ll be the first time I’ve ever been, so I’m a little nervous, but I’m sure I’ll enjoy it. I’ll let you know
