Gutsy Gibbon

Today saw the release of Ubuntu 7.10, aka 'Gutsy Gibbon'. I thought I'd go ahead and upgrade. How wonderful 8MB ADSL is... I had the 800 megs in update files in no time. The upgrade went off without a hitch, which is usually the best thing you can say about an upgrade.

This version has Gnome 2.20, which is as unexciting as any previous version. There's also Compiz Fusion support which is really cool but beyond my laptop's graphics capabilities, so I wobbled a few windows and then switched it off. But it's nice to know it's there. Oh, and Nautilus is as rubbish as ever. That's about it.
