Well, so far, not so good. But I am hoping that I can install the final release tomorrow and it might be tweaked.
Right now I am attempting to stream Bones on Hulu, but I get jumpy video and some artifacts on a system with nothing else running. Youtube video works ok at standard def but HD is a slideshow. I can't seem to figure out how to tweak panel auto-hide delay so that is a bit annoying too Tried gconf-editor but no luck. Finally the 16gb SDHC card that worked in the stock 8.04 dellbuntu is no longer present. I have run all updates but still no love.
Everything else works just fine out of the box. music, wireless, suspend, etc. I have 16gb SSD
, 2gb ram, no BT
So, I'm going to re-install tomorrow with the final and see how things go. Otherwise I might go back to 8.10 which I have used for some time on my Latitude D630 with excellent results.
