Hmmm, I'm tryin it (UUE 2.3) right now and I gotta say I'm not feelin the love. My guess is the eye candy is gobblin up way too much cpu time/speed since it runs a lot slower than the 9.04 I was usin.

The upside is if someone wants to use an Ubuntu OS with lots of pretty baubles and lots of programs all preloaded it's a winner. I'll give it a lil more screen time before I make the final call but my initial thoughts are it will problee be dumped in favor of straight up Ubuntu 9.10.

9.10 boots up faster than anything I've seen yet and flies within and between applications which is more important to me than is the eye candy. 'Sides, I can customize 9.10 to do all kindsa cool stuff and create whatever visual goodies I like without runnin slower than Christmas grinning

I managed to figure part of the speed difference w/ the new OS. Though I had set it up to load the OS onto my 32gb solid state HD I use just to house my (current) OS it seems it instead loaded it onto a 500gb SATA HD that only has 18gb of room left on it which indeed has an impact on the speed it runs at.

I have found usin the SS HD makes my machine really cruise compared to havin the OS on a drive that also is a storage drive for files. Though I've read that this system isn't dependable (as in the SS HDs tend to lose their data over time) I haven't had any real issues with it doin so in the 4 or 5 months I've been runnin this way so far. Then again, that's not really all that long either, so ....

Though I usually disconnect the other HDs in my system when I load up a new OS, this time I didn't and sure enough it loaded the OS to a different drive than I had chosen angry
