Ubuntu 6.10 Installed
I took some time this evening to install Ubuntu 6.10 on my desktop. I had heard that some people were having problems doing an upgrade so I did a clean install. I have two computers, a desktop and a laptop. I consider the laptop to be my primary computer, so I experimented with the desktop. I backed up what I needed to save and blew away the system partition. I rationalized the partitions a bit to reduce the number on the system and installed Ubuntu 6.10. It looks good and so far is running well. I used automatix to install some codecs, fonts, and extras.
Ubuntu 6.10 comes with Firefox 2.0 and F-spot an open source photo manager ala Picasa. Firefox is working well, and I F-spot the once over. It is supposed to upload to flickr and Picasa Web Albums. I use both as well as Yahoo Photos. Interestingly, Picasa on linux cannot upload to Picasa Web Albums.
